Hampshire County Council provides a wide range of services which make a difference to residents’ lives on a daily basis, including education, transport, planning, social care, libraries, waste management and trading standards.
The three corporate strategy objectives outline the overarching long-term ambition for Hampshire:
Hampshire safer and more secure for all – this is our overarching objective and is about developing and supporting stronger, safer communities for all by protecting vulnerable people, maximising safety in the places we live, helping young people to live positive lives and helping diverse communities to feel secure.
Maximising wellbeing – this objective is about maintaining and improving residents’ health and quality of life and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to support themselves, be active in their community and have access to the services they need, whilst knowing that should things go wrong, we are there to support them.
Enhancing our quality of place – this objective is all about making the county a good place to be by protecting local distinctiveness and diversity, ensuring excellent facilities, respecting Hampshire’s heritage and planning proactively for the future.
