SERVICES for children, young people, and their families who are most in need of care and protection have been prioritised by Hampshire County Council.

The children’s services’ revenue budget proposals have been laid out for 2015/16.

The report outlines the savings needed to be achieved by the department by the end of the 2014/15 financial year, and looks ahead to 2015/16.

A pressures highlighted in the report is the continued demand for children’s social care services.
