A child in Hampshire needs a loving home every 12 hours.

Could you provide the care they need this Summer?

Every 12 hours, a child comes into care in need of a safe and nurturing home. At Hampshire County Council, we provide our foster carers with the support, financial help and training they need to become carers in their community. Find out more this summer how you can start your fostering journey with us.
