Childcare and family services in Hampshire

This website is aimed at adults in Hampshire with care and support needs.

Hampshire County Council’s Children’s Services Department provides a wealth of information about services for families, children and young people.

Hampshire’s Local Offer website is a guide to the services that are available in Hampshire for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities aged from 0 to 25 (sometimes this is known as SEN or SEND). The Local Offer is developed with parents, carers, children and young people to make sure it meets your needs.


Our Getting out and about section has information about leisure activities, shopping and holidays for Hampshire residents who are disabled or may have limited mobility.  This section also includes information about driving, parking, public and community transport and concessions.

You can search our Community directory for leisure and entertainment activities in your community.

You can also see Hampshire’s What's on pages to look for local activities and events.
