A Community Analysis of Risk Assessment Tools for MARAC

Risk assessment in the violence against women sector is a critical strategy to help identify the likelihood of repeat or increased violence and prevent further harm. 

As part of the MARAC project, a collection of risk assessment tools was reviewed for the purpose of identifying a tool for use at high-risk MARAC tables being piloted in Ontario. This community analysis features a range of risk assessments and examines the different components of the tools based on considerations outlined by project partners and criteria defined in academic literature.
