The Hampton Trust was founded in 1996 to deliver domestic violence prevention programmes to perpetrators within the criminal justice system. For ten years we worked alongside Hampshire police and probation staff delivering programmes for all court mandated referrals.

From 2006 we expanded our services to include community-based interventions. We developed award-winning programmes such as ADAPT (Accredited Domestic Abuse Prevention Training) to work with adult perpetrators and the acclaimed LINX model to work with young people who had experienced domestic abuse and were committing violent crimes. Confronting violence at a community level means we are challenging these cyclical behaviour patterns head on rather than simply dealing with their consequences.

In 2011, we returned to our criminal justice roots in the form of Project CARA (Caution and Relationship Abuse); domestic abuse awareness raising workshops were delivered to offenders as a conditional caution. We worked closely with Hampshire Constabulary and Cambridge University’s Institute of Criminology to deliver CARA under randomised control trial conditions. CARA is a national and international first for testing this approach.

We continue to contribute to testing new approaches in criminal justice responses via our adapted LINX programme delivered under Project Gateway and designed to transform the treatment of 18 to 24-year old’s entering police custody. We are currently developing interventions for female offenders using a trauma informed approach.
