We're reaching out to the local community through marketing and PR activities. We're sharing stories and raising awareness of aspects of the care sector that we feel are newsworthy. We also take part in community events and have a very active facebook group www.facebook.com/careinhampshire
Take a look through a few examples of our local PR below:
