The Family Services department provides a range of information, advice and support services for disabled children and young people, those with special educational needs (aged 0-25 years) and their families.
In Hampshire, Dorset, Poole and Bournemouth, we are delivering Independent Support. An Independent Supporter will give impartial support to families with children or young people who are transferring from a statement of Special Educational Needs to an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or applying for a new EHCP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0300 303 8604
The Hampshire Local Offer sets out, in one place, information about provision available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled. As delivery partners we were responsible for co-producing the design and content of the site and are currently responsible for keeping it up to date.
Hampshire Gateway is the result of a collaboration between Parent Voice and Hampshire County Council. It was designed and developed through consultation with parents to provide a gateway to recreation and leisure for all disabled children and young people who may require additional support to access opportunities within their communities.
