Directory of VIG Practitioners

AVIGuk does not provide video interaction guidance services. We publish this directory as a means to help the public find services in their locality.

This directory consists of independent practitioners that offer services directly to the service user or their representative. These services are normally fee-paying. A listing here does not amount to a recommendation by AVIGuk but, in order to be listed, their training has been accredited by AVIGuk and that they continue to be registered with us.

Most VIG is carried out in the public sector or by charities. If you are looking for such a provider of VIG, use this form to contact someone from AVIGuk in your location.
