Hampshire County Council has opened a six-week consultation to seek the views of the public and those who use the County Council’s services, as well as other interested stakeholders on proposed changes to three non-statutory grant areas and to Homelessness Support Services.
This consultation outlines proposals that could enable Hampshire County Council to deliver savings in the following two areas:
- Adult Social Care Grants:
to stop the funding for three Adult Social Care grant schemes which support voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations.
- the Neighbourhood Care and Support grant scheme
- the Community Based Support grant scheme; and
- the Rural Connections grant scheme.
2. Homelessness Support Services:
to reduce funding for Homelessness Support Services in Hampshire.
The consultation seeks to describe the potential impacts of the proposed options and provide the opportunity for those responding to make alternative suggestions about how these savings could be made.
The consultation will be open until Monday, 21 March 2022 and can be found here: Hampshire County Council Adults’ Health and Care Consultation
