Hampshire County Youth Conference
A number of conferences are held each year for young people in Hampshire.
Local Children's Partnerships in Hampshire identify groups of young people aged 11-19 (and up to 25 with special needs) who may benefit from attending the conference. These groups of young people identify what’s going on locally and these ideas are brought to the conference for further discussion. The conferences provide a range of useful information to give to a panel of top decision makers. There are also stalls and interactive workshops at the conferences.
