IDAA / MARAC

Our independent domestic abuse advocates (IDAAS) will work with you if you have been identified as facing a high risk of harm from your partner or ex-partner. They will work alongside you and other agencies like housing, the police and social work to try and increase your safety.

IDAAs work with women on a short-term basis to reduce their risk, and once the risk is reduced they will receive support from another part of the service.

As part of the support you receive from an IDAA you may be referred to Forth Valley's Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC). This is a meeting that is held once a month to discuss the victims of domestic abuse in Forth Valley who are identified as being most in danger. It is attended by many different agencies including Women's Aid, the Police, Housing and Social Work. At the meetings we share information that is relevant to your safety and create a safety plan which all the different agencies take part in. The IDAA will make sure that your views are represented at the meeting, and make sure that you know what will happen following it.
