The County Council’s priority of “Hampshire Safer and More Secure for All “ is reflected in the wide variety of services which it delivers. All of this work is delivered in local towns, cities and villages, to ensure that we all feel safe, and to help build strong communities. We have a particular focus on supporting our young people and our more vulnerable residents.
We support the following services
Officers are community-driven and deal with everyday concerns that can affect residents’ quality of life, such as youth nuisance and under-age drinking.
Hampshire Trading Standards deal in a range of areas from protecting consumers to working with businesses.
Mental health is being tackled under a new strategy. We work to create services, facilities and opportunities that see people as unique individuals and support their empowerment, independence and recovery.
Youth Offending Team (YOT) is a multi agency partnership dealing with statutory warnings and court orders and to prevent youth offending for children and young people aged between 10-18.
The Wellbeing and Partnerships team provides services to a wide range of people who need help and assistance to live full and independent lives.
Hampshire County Council is co-ordinating our services to help the estimated 1,590 troubled families with multiple problems and disadvantages to live more fulfilled lives.
We work to put in place services which prevent abuse of vulnerable adults, provide assessment and investigation of abuse and ensure people are given an opportunity to access justice.
As a ‘responsible authority’ the Council recognises that effective crime and disorder management supports the delivery of our services for the people of Hampshire.
Extra Care Housing offers the opportunity for residents to have their own homes, but with 24 hour care and support. We also help people stay in their homes, or move into residential or nursing care if it is right for them.
