The Children’s Society started work in Hampshire to develop support locally and nationally for young carers and their families. Between 1994 and 2014 The Children’s Society worked directly with Hampshire County Council to develop local support. This work has been recognised as best practice and informed the development of national strategies and policies. Please see our Legacy Timeline below.

Information about Hampshire County Council’s on-going support for young carers and their families, including Supporting Young Carers in Hampshire: A multi-agency strategy, guidance for professionals  and contact details for local young carers projects can be found at

We also offer bespoke training to local authorities and organisations.
