Multi-agency Forums, or MAFs, as they are more commonly known, are community based meetings where agencies come together to discuss relevant issues relating to safeguarding and the well-being of children and young people. Members may discuss cases either to get advice from other agencies or to share information and because these meeting are community based they can discuss issues most relevant to their area. Those who attend MAFs tell us that they find them really helpful and supportive in their work. The ambition is to have active MAFs operating in all community areas. Details of those currently active with contact details for the Coordinator can be found here.
