What is the Common Risk Assessment Tool (CRAT)?

The CRAT is an evidence based tool which is used to assess the risk of harm for a DFV victim survivor.

The CRAT combines evidence based risk factors, with the victim survivor’s self-assessment of their risk, and the worker’s professional judgement. Once completed, the CRAT provides an assessed level of risk and recommended actions to respond.

The CRAT is also used to refer serious risk cases to the Family Safety Framework where it operates.
