Hampshire County Council: Working for you

Workmen putting up road signs

By reshaping our services and finding new and innovative ways to work with partners we can ensure better value for money – helping to keep Council Tax levels as low as possible.

The County Council is one of nine local authorities to have been chosen to take part in the Government’s new Public Sector Transformation Network. We will be using this Network to share expertise as we work with partners and local communities to manage demand for public services, jointly investing in long term solutions, changing what we do and how we do it to improve services for you.

By working in a co-ordinated and planned way with our partners to deliver high quality, cost-effective public services we want to:

We also want to do this in partnership with you. Using customer and community feedback, together with information about levels of need across the county, we can plan and deliver local solutions which work best for the communities we serve.

Transforming lives

“This is the place for us.  We feel safe and secure.”

That’s the verdict of Tony Mardell on the Extra Care Assisted Living apartment  he shares with his wife Joan in Basingstoke.

Extra Care Assisted Living is just one of the ways in which Hampshire County Council is working in partnership with other organisations to provide flexible, modern services for Hampshire residents. Tony (76) and Joan (81) are among residents already benefitting from this partnership work. They lived in a warden assisted bungalow but with increasing health concerns they realised they needed more support close at hand and moved to Newman Court where Extra Care Assisted Living ensures they can both remain together and living as independently as possible for as long as possible. “We came to a decision that we would feel more secure if we had access to support on site. This scheme has care support 24 hours a day and it is marvellous.”
