Hampshire Hub

Hampshire Hub LOGOWe all make decisions as part of our daily lives: as individuals, employees, business owners, managers, school governors, councillors (or in any number of other roles). The Hampshire Hub aims to help inform anyone with decisions to make, by bringing together good quality data and information from a variety of sources. It focuses on Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, but we realise that the world doesn’t stop at Hampshire’s county line, and you’ll find quite a lot that isn’t necessarily Hampshire-specific there as well.

We’re sharing everything we can (that’s non-personal, of course) unless we aren’t allowed to (some providers of data don’t allow us to share it publicly). Hampshire Hub is work in progress, and there’s lots left to do.
