Toolkit for MVPs

Here you will find information and guidance to set up and develop an effective Maternity Voices Partnership.

MVP Toolkit

Read our 2022 MVP Toolkit. This provides a summary of guidance and practice to support you with setting up, developing and maintaining your MVP.  While some aspects may differ from guidance in the Three year Delivery Plan for Maternity and Neonatal services published in March 2023 and the Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership Guidance published in November 2023, you may still find the materials here useful. 

Resources & templates

If you are looking for a particular document or resource, you may prefer to start from this list of all the resources that are linked to in the MVP Toolkit. 

We are collating local MVP resources and documents that can be adapted for use in other areas on the Resource Bank on Future NHS. If you have examples that are working well in your locality, please send them to us via this form.
