Transforming Children’s Social Care Services in Hampshire

Report | November 2020

The Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme aims to test and share effective ways of supporting vulnerable children and young people who need help from children’s social care services. IPC has been heavily involved in the evaluation of the scheme.

In Hampshire, the IPC evaluation explored how to transform children’s social care practice through the lens of a successful ‘Hampshire Approach’, capturing the practice and outcome benefits of an ambitious whole system transformation programme led by Hampshire Children’s Services.

‘The Hampshire Approach’ used learning from previous innovations in children’s social care to develop a highly relationship-and strengths-based model for social work practice, focused on helping families to make changes and become more resilient.
