Engagement & Meetings

Our MNVP Volunteers meet with parents in community settings across the BSW region to gather feedback and listen to your views eg. Maternity/Health Visitor hubs, Baby groups etc.

If you have any suggestions of places we could visit please contact us

Alongside our MNVP volunteers listening to parents in the community through attending groups and maternity & health visiting settings,  we also have a monthly online ‘Conversation 15’ around the 15th of each month at 8.00pm lasting for around 90 minutes. The topics change each month and are publicised via our Instagram and Facebook pages. We invite local healthcare professional colleagues to listen to what parents across BSW are sharing about their care and experiences. It is also an opportunity for professionals to share service developments and changes they’ve made in response to feedback received.

Please check our Facebook page for additional information and timings or email us if you would like us to host a public engagement event in your area.

Our Maternity & Neonatal Voices Partnership meetings are held twice yearly.  Our Service User Volunteers identify the themes that have emerged through our Survey Monkey as well as feedback collected in the community. These themes are shared with our health professional colleagues in maternity, neonatal and health visiting at regular monthly meetings, where decisions are made about changes that can be implemented to further improve services for parents.
