Councillor Grajewski said: “Our Supporting Families programme which brings together a wide range of Hampshire agencies including local councils, the Police, voluntary sector, Health and Criminal Justice has transformed the way services are delivered to support vulnerable families across the county. This has resulted in more than 3,000 families who might otherwise have faced a lifetime of disadvantage, now having a brighter future. Government funding to support the programme was expected to cease at the end of this financial year, so we have been busy establishing a grants programme to enable some of those organisations already delivering direct support to families to continue their good work. Receiving confirmation that national funding for this important programme is set to continue for a further year is very welcome indeed.” Hampshire’s Supporting Families Programme began in 2012, as part of a national initiative to support fam- ilies facing multiple issues such as persistent unem- ployment, poor education, poor health, crime and antisocial behaviour, domestic violence and young people failing to thrive. e programme takes a ‘whole family’ approach involving everyone in the family including grandparents, parents, young people and children. It allows families to build on their strengths while helping them to overcome some of the concerns, di culties, challenges or obstacles they may have in their lives. In addition, an independent evaluation by Solent University shows that between 2015-19, the support given to families to get back on their feet successfully, translated into savings or costs avoided of £27million to the public purse. Going forward, the successful multi agency approach to working with families will be co-ordinated via the County Council’s Family Support Service Hubs situated throughout the county. ese provide early help services for families who need support on a wide range of issues. Play continues inside the National Motor Museum as the fun- lled family exhibition Motoring in Miniature – the Toys of Your Childhood opens for Easter. Most of us have early motoring memories from before we learned to drive – and that’s the shiny toys we gazed at in the toy shop window and spent hours ‘driving’ across the living room carpet or in the garden outside. ese were the toys you were told to clear up, the toys you were proud of and the toys that you loved. From tin plate and wooden toys to die-cast and slot cars. See pull-alongs and pedal cars, radio control cars and scale models. Spot familiar car jigsaws, board games and computer games... these are the toys of your childhood. Recollections of the Tu y Club road safety campaign are bound to make you nostalgic and the memories will come ooding back as you share stories of your motoring history with the exhibition that all of the family will enjoy.
