Child and Young Person MARAM tool

Swinburne University of Technology and Safe and Equal have been contracted by Family Safety Victoria to develop evidence-based child and young person victim survivor and young person using family violence risk identification and assessment tools, as part of the Child and Young Person-focused Multi Agency Risk Assessment and Management (MARAM) practice guides.

All MARAM prescribed workers are invited to respond to two surveys that will inform the development process:

  • The first survey focuses on risk factors for children and young people. Estimate duration: 45-60 minutes. You can access the survey here.
  • The second survey asks about observable signs of family violence, protective factors and wellbeing for children and young people.Estimate duration: 30-45 minutes. You can access the survey here.

For more information, contact the project’s Lead Investigator,  Dr Rachel Burgin or to Co-Investigator Ellen McGregor
