Alison Morton, Acting Executive Director at iHV, presented at last week’s Hempsall’s Changing Lives Through Childcare webinar.

Alison promoted the role of the health visitor (HV) and improving the uptake of the 2 year offer, the breadth of the HV role, and why a well resourced health visiting service is needed to improve outcomes for all children, particularly the most vulnerable.

Hempsall’s national Changing Lives Through Childcare webinar was for all parent-facing professionals to develop their knowledge of 15-hours childcare for the least advantaged two-year-olds, alongside other funded childcare and help with childcare costs.
