The number one corporate priority of Hampshire County Council is the protection of vulnerable children and adults in Hampshire. Our Adult Safeguarding and Education Team play an important role in supporting the Council’s Adult Services Department by providing the legal advice and support that it needs in order to fulfil its duty to protect at risk adults.

A complete, solutions focused package of legal support is available to you as our client including, and only if necessary, the full range of court applications from public law review to Court of Protection applications. Our knowledge, experience and support will be there from the initial referral through to the preparation of an application, attendance at court and the making of the final order.
