iHV submitted evidence to the Science and Technology Committee for their Evidence-based Early-years Intervention and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) inquiry and this is now published on the inquiry website.  iHV highlighted the current challenges health visitors face in responding adequately to the needs of vulnerable children.

Thank you very much to all those who recently shared the status of practice where you work – we used some of this evidence in our submission to highlight the many challenges the profession is facing in delivering its work for children and families.  All quotes are anonymised for person and place so can’t be traced to any individual or area, but collectively they give a powerful message.
