This report introduces the National Independent Visitor Development Project, launched in March 2014 with the aim of raising awareness of the role of the independent visitor (IV), and introducing a set of national quality standards. The authors note a lack of awareness around IV, and potential gaps where children are unable to access the service. They discuss the three-year project's establishment of six professional network groups across England and Wales which helped to provide data for the report. They describe how this helped researchers to understand how many children were currently receiving support from an IV, identify gaps, and gather details of how services were run in order to share best practice. They also explain the role and legal position of IVs.
