Access to support services

Services delivered by Hampshire County Council and its partners

It is intended that the County Council’s support for the armed forces should be embedded in its mainstream services based on identified need. It is not about providing preferential services.

Priority treatment should only be given to veterans and reservists if they have a physical or mental condition. This must be a direct result of their military service, wherever possible.

Health and wellbeing

Hampshire County Council is responsible for providing and commissioning social care for people with mental health problems. We work with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Rehabilitation Company. This partnership supports veterans who find themselves within the criminal justice system through Liaison and Diversion Services and peer mentoring people post sentencing.
