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!
We believe that SEND is everyone’s business. The aim of a special interest group 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 children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families.
