The aim of a special interest group (SIG) is to build a national network of health visitors with strong interests in particular subject areas, to improve health visiting services for families. The groups will provide a forum to share best practice, pathways, policies, new ideas, even creating a national initiative. Through working together as a group, the SIGs could really make change happen. These shared ideas would benefit children and their families in reducing inequalities and improving outcomes.

Our aim is to promote innovation in health visiting nationally. As with many areas, capacity is a challenge, with reduced staff numbers alongside increased need. Despite this, we believe that change is possible. We need to think smarter to achieve an enhanced pathway of care. We passionately believe in working smarter not harder!

SEND SIG

 

We believe that Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is everyone’s business. The aim of our SEND special interest group (SIG) is to build a national network of health visitors in a SEND role, or health visitors with a strong interest in SEND, to improve health visiting services for families. Our aim is to promote innovation in SEND health visiting nationally, ensuring a caring and agile approach to the delivery of care and support to babies and children with SEND and their families.

We have received great feedback from our SEND SIG events:

‘This is what I have been waiting for! Lots of great ideas and reassurance around my new role. – Thank you’

‘Really good to hear from other areas and their ways of working and sharing good practice. I came away with lots of inspiration and some resources 🙂 many thanks’

‘It’s brilliant to be able to collaborate ideas and share information. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the group.’

‘Good practice and sharing of ideas and work – excellent session!’
