We had quite a day yesterday with an afternoon celebration to mark the end of our first very successful year and to launch our annual report. It was fantastic to have 3 iHV Associates addressing the delegates about their experience of our work streams.
iHV Director Dr Cheryll Adams said '12 months ago the management team couldn't have imagined that the iHV would have had such a successful first year. We just didn't know what the future would hold although we were clear on what we wanted to achieve. The fact that we have so many health visitors signed up to support us already is particularly rewarding.
Become one of the iHV's domestic violence and abuse (DVA) Health Visitor Experts
This year health visitors have been able to join the iHV as Foundation Associates and they receive a special certificate to confirm this, making them part of our history. The Associate scheme has proved very popular with more than 1600 health visitors expected to be Associate members by the end of the year when corporate memberships for several Trusts go through.
