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.
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.
