Searching for information

Because different parts of this website can be searched in different ways, we do not have one search bar for the whole website.

We tell you where to look and how to search for information on our ‘About this site / FAQs’ page. You can access this page at any time by clicking on the ‘Help’ button at the top of each page.


You can change the language on the website by selecting the drop-down list of languages from the Google button at the top of the page.

Please note that when web pages are translated into other languages this may impact on the effectiveness of a screen reader set to read English.

Links to other pages or external websites

This website gives links to many other websites. Words in blue are the link you click on.

Some websites do not let you use a back button to get back to Connect to Support Hampshire. So we have decided to open all of these links in a new window or tab. This symbol at the end of the words in blue tells you that the link will open in a new window or tab.

On computers or laptops, the new tab, with the website you have clicked on, will open on the right and Connect to Support Hampshire will stay open. To go back to Connect to Support Hampshire, just click on the tab to the left.

On your phone, the new website will also open a new tab or window. Just open your ‘tabs’ to tap on the Connect to Support Hampshire tab to get back to this website.

PDF documents

We have tried to keep most of the information on this website as web pages. We do include some Portable Document Format (PDF) files. To view and print PDF files, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader (or an equivalent PDF viewer) installed. You can download a free pdf reader.

All downloadable documents, such as PDFs, which have been published on this website have been checked with the PAVE accessibility checker.

We cannot guarantee that documents on other websites we link to have been checked.
