Multi-Agency Request for Service Form (MARF)
A letter from the Chair of the Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board (GSCB) regarding the mandatory use of the Gloucestershire multi-agency service request form (MARF) is attached.
Where schools need to refer a child to social care, please use the form available on the GSCB website.
Schools should always seek consent to refer from parents/carers unless to do so would put the child at greater risk of harm. Where you feel a child is at significant risk of harm, you can of course contact the children’s helpdesk on 01452 426565 for immediate advice.
