We have an excellent track record in improving outcomes for children and were found to be Outstanding in all areas of our practice by Ofsted in June 2019.

With a senior leadership team with combined experience of over 60 years, in Hampshire we have a unique understanding of children’s social care and what it means to be a children’s social worker. This blend of skills within our management team has allowed us to structure and deliver a unique service, which is of the utmost benefit not just to Hampshire’s vulnerable young people and their families, but to our staff as well. An appreciation for the skills, facilities and technology that social workers need has allowed us to transform our practice for the better and is what makes us one of just a handful of Outstanding service providers in the entire country.

Beyond this, our 'Partners in Practice' status allows us to showcase a model of excellence that other local authorities and the whole social care system can learn from. We are committed to sharing our knowledge across the social care landscape and have already seen real successes when working in this way with partners such as Isle of Wight, Torbay, Berkshire and more. With our newly established Outstanding status, we can provide unique insight and expertise to peers and colleagues, to help them to improve their service and provide better outcomes to children and families.

“The support’s been phenomenal; there is a lot of communication between social workers and managers. I feel I know where Hampshire is going, we’re very innovative.”
