Cllr Patricia Stallard meets Havant MP Alan Mak

This photo shows County Councillor Patricia Stallard meeting recently with Havant MP Alan Mak, when they discussed the Supporting Families Programme run by Hampshire County Council.  The scheme provides support to local families with persistent problems such as mental health issues, poor school attendance or anti-social behaviour.  So far the scheme has engaged with more than 5,000 Hampshire families, including 600 in the Havant area - with the ambition to help 7,000 families by 2020. 

Alan described the work being done as "an excellent example of the wider community benefiting from a great public service."
