The National Independent Visitor Standards

Author : The National Independent Visitor Network (January 2016)

Price : Free

The National Independent Visitor Development Project aims to raise awareness around the role of the independent visitor (IV) for looked after children.

The National Independent Visitor Network (NIVN) worked with IV services all over England and Wales to create the National IV Standards, which are recognised by all leading service providers. Together our aspiration is that all looked-after children will know what an Independent Visitor is, have access to a high-quality Independent Visitor service and be able to influence the direction of that service.
