Using Virtual Reality in Children’s Social Care

10/10/2023 11:30 - 12:30

Hampshire County Council has been on a programme of innovation and transformation of its children’s social care practice over recent years. In order to help our practitioners and wider teams to better understand and empathise with situations and scenarios our children and families face, we have recently started trialling the use of Virtual Reality headsets across the county.

Find out more about how we are using this new technology to allow us to put ourselves in the shoes of the families we work with, to improve their outcomes and chances.
