What we do
Standing Together Against Domestic Violence is a UK charity bringing communities together to end domestic abuse.
A Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a regular local meeting to discuss how to help victims at high risk of murder or serious harm.
No single agency has a complete picture of the life of a domestic abuse survivor, but many will have insights that are crucial to their safety.
The MARAC is both a forum to share these insights with other local services and to develop a joined-up safety plan.
In 1999, Standing Together pioneered the first multi-agency group to implement safety measures for victims of domestic abuse in Hammersmith and Fulham. MARACs have since been recommended by successive governments and are now prioritised in every Local Authority area.
Today, Standing Together coordinates MARACs across five London boroughs:
- Hammersmith & Fulham
- Kensington & Chelsea
