Researcher asking for help

We often gets requests for help with research into aspects of domestic abuse. If you have experience of attending MARACs, then we'd ask that you please consider supporting the following:


My name is Natalie Acheampong. I am a paralegal with a postgraduate degree in Criminal Law and Criminal Justice. Now I am a Tuwezeshe fellow, and I am emailing you regarding a project I am creating called ‘Track my MARAC.’  


This project is sponsored by the TuWezeshe Akina Dada Africa-UK Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Movement, a fellowship funded by Comic Relief.


‘Track my MARAC’, (MARAC is a Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference) is a project that focuses on research and advocacy to produce a report that reviews the possibilities of a more effective MARAC process. This will culminate in a roundtable being hosted next year March whereby I introduce a report that addresses the challenges MARACs face and what can be done to achieve a more effective MARAC process.


The two aims of my project are as follows:

  1. To write a comprehensive report about MARACs, highlighting its objectives, challenges and opportunities.
  2. Present this to relevant stakeholders with a view to advocating for improvement of MARACs at a roundtable discussion.


1.     It would be much appreciated if you could fill out this 2-minute survey about MARACs as it would help me get a grasp on what people think about MARACs and assist the quality of my research. This is completely anonymous.

Here is a link to my survey

2.     It would be greatly appreciated if I could interview you for 15 minutes and incorporate your feedback as a stakeholder into my report. This can also be completely anonymous if you want it to be. 

I would also really appreciate it if you could share my survey with people who have engaged with MARACs to some degree! I look forward to hearing from you.
