3.8 Social media accounts

It is generally the service user leadership team (e.g. Chair and Vice-chair) who create and manage the social media accounts for the Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP), so that these are clearly separate from the accounts of the partner organisations. Platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can help you to communicate with many parents in your community and to give them a way of getting in contact with you. National Maternity Voices has developed social media guidelines for MVPs. If you have capacity and the necessary skills, you may also decide to create a web site for your MVP. Alternatively, some information about the MVP could be hosted on a partner organisation web site.

You can request a logo for your MVP from National Maternity Voices.
