Warwickshire MASH has introduced a new form to replace the current Multi-Agency Referral Form (MARF) which is used by partners to raise safeguarding concerns. The new MAC form has been developed to reflect the new 'Pathway to Change' approach and will focus on what is working well for the family, as well as issues of concern. It also contains links to other services which can be considered by the person completing the form.

Officers from the MASH have consulted widely with partners to ensure the form captures the essence of their concerns and what they would like to emphasise. The previous term 'referral' was not accurate. Those submitting the MARF assumed that by submitting the referral form that the case would automatically be allocated; whereby when it was received in the MASH a decision would be made about whether it constituted a referral or not. Therefore, the form has now been more accurately renamed and redesigned as a Multi-Agency Contact form.

The new MAC form goes live with effect from Monday 5 October 2020 and will replace the current MARF from this date onwards and will be available to download from the Children's Safeguarding Procedures Manual from this date onwards.
