Two new iHV practice guidance documents on safeguarding

30th January 2017

We are delighted to share two new practice guidance documents around safeguarding with our members.

These documents can be found in the members-only A-Z Resource Library under Safeguarding and also the members-only Professional Guidance section.

Safeguarding (1): Serious Case Reviews: messages for health visiting practice

This iHV practice guidance draws on the action plans that were generated by the participants of the iHV Safeguarding and Child Protection  experts’ programme and outlines the top 20 messages for health visiting practice.

Safeguarding (2): Information sharing in safeguarding children

This practice guidance will help to support health visitors in the timely, appropriate and proportionate sharing of information in safeguarding children in line with legislation, government guidance and professional regulation. Good practice in information sharing is fundamental to safeguarding children and adults who are at risk of, or suffering from, significant harm.


Please note that these guidance documents are available to iHV members only.

If you’re not a member, please join us to get access to all of our resources.

The iHV is a self-funding charity – we can only be successful in our mission to strengthen health visiting practice if the health visiting profession and its supporters join us on our journey. We rely on our membership to develop new resources for our members.

So do join us now!
