Community and living

The Community Team at East Hampshire District Council offers advice and support to our diverse communities on a range of subjects, from grants and funding, to promoting healthy lifestyles, to integrating new residents into existing settlements, and much more.

We support other departments within the council to engage with residents in a meaningful way, and look to maximise resident involvement in all council activities.

We work with our elected members to help them meet their communities’ aspirations, and perform a public-facing engagement role on behalf of the Authority.
