MARAT is a Multi Agency Referral and Assessment Team that acts as the 'front door' for Trafford's children and young people's service.
We accept referrals for children and young people that are deemed to be in need of a certain level of support and undertake child protection enquiries where appropriate. Once a referral has been accepted an Initial Assessment will be completed with a view to identifying appropriate services.
Depending on the nature of your enquiry or request we will also:
- Give advice and guidance
- Provide information on available services
- Put you in contact with other agencies or services which may be of help
- Put you in contact with the relevant professional dealing with a family
