eCAF Westminster and MARF

Westminster City Council is no longer using the Common Assessment Framework (CAF or eCAF).  This has been replaced with the Multiagency Assessment and Referral Form (MARF). 

The MARF is a strengths-based assessment and referral tool based on the Signs of Safety. Find out more about the Signs of Safety Approach.

The MARF is an online form available on the Early Help Information Service website. To access the form you must first register as a new user – this is quick and simple, and allows you to keep track of your completed forms.
