On this page, you will find the details of domestic abuse agencies in our local boroughs and how you can access them.
Domestic Violence (DV) MARAC
The Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a monthly meeting, which provides a platform for sharing information and drawing up safety plans to reduce further risk or harm to the victim/survivor.
Information sharing is restricted and highly confidential to multi-agencies attending the meeting, which is guided by an Information Sharing Agreement.
Referrals can be made for those who are 16+, living in the boroughs of Camden and Islington, and are at high risk of domestic abuse. Perpetrators of domestic abuse can be an intimate partner or family member - regardless of their gender or sexuality.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
