LLR Multi-Agency Referral Form (MARF)

The Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Multi-Agency Referral Form (MARF) was revised in 2019. The purpose of the MARF is to allow referrals to be made to the Local Authorities' Early Help Service and/or Children's Social Care through one referral form.

The MARF was launched on 8th April 2019. Please see below two outline briefing templates, one for education settings and one for all other partners that can be used to support effective use of the MARF in your setting.

In addition the Safeguarding Children Partnerships are running 'Working Together to make a good referral' training to support referrals and using the MARF. This can be accessed through the Partnerships' Learning and Development pages.

Please support use of the MARF in your agency/setting to support effective and timely safeguarding of children.
