The Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) is an independent charity, professional body and Centre of Excellence – established to improve health outcomes and reduce inequalities for babies, children, families and communities through a strengthened health visiting service.
We do this in a wide variety of ways, including education and training, research, publications, digital resources and toolkits, professional development, and innovative projects to address key public health challenges. Our work helps support health visiting teams across the UK to provide the best possible care to the thousands of families that they support every week.
We have created a range of opportunities to enable you to engage with this important audience through our face-to-face and hybrid conferences to raise your organisation’s profile. Exhibitor and sponsor packages can be tailored to your needs and include promotional opportunities through branding, distribution of your resources, exhibitor stands, and sponsored sessions with Q&A.

iHV Leadership Conference
The Institute of Health Visiting’s annual leadership conference has become an important date in the calendar for health visitors to come together and celebrate the very best of health visiting and the difference it makes to babies, young children and families.
With high profile national and international speakers, the event attracts delegates from across the public health and early years sector, and is aimed at health visiting leaders, aspiring leaders, commissioners, service providers and policy makers. This conference always receives excellent feedback from delegates who report that they leave feeling re-energised and reconnected following a packed agenda of inspirational speakers. Many of our delegates also take the opportunity to meet up with colleagues from across the UK and enjoy the ambience and other attractions of London at Christmas.
