What is the scheme about?

Norfolk Independent Visitors Scheme (NIVS) was set up by NCH for children and young people who are looked after by Norfolk Children's Services. NCH is a large national children's charity.

The Children Act 1989 says that if you don't see much of your parents while you are being looked after by Children's Services, you must be given the opportunity to have an Independent Visitor if you want one.
