Consultation on the future of the respite service at Orchard Close, Hayling Island

Closed on

Hampshire County Council is holding a public consultation to seek the views of service users, the public, and other interested stakeholders on proposals to close Orchard Close Respite Service, Hayling Island, with a view to providing more personalised and tailored respite solutions to those people who currently use the service

The proposal is in response to changes in the way people wish to access respite Support. In addition, the age and construction of the building itself means it is unable to accommodate those with complex needs who require intensive support.

The consultation is open from midday on Friday 28 September 2018 to midnight on Friday 21 December 2018.

Note that responses received after this time will not be included in the findings report.

The findings from this consultation will be published and presented to the Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health on 27 February 2019 for consideration when making their decision on this proposal.
