Hampton Trust is one of the most respected and innovative UK providers of work in the field of domestic abuse and criminal justice. We are committed to rebuilding lives by addressing the root cause of domestic abuse and criminality.

Under our children and young people’s strand, we provide innovative programmes to support individuals who have experienced adverse childhood experiences. Since 1996, we have delivered a range of targeted interventions to young people in the criminal justice system or involved in risk taking behaviour.  For many young people, living with adversity has created a variety of coping strategies and vulnerabilities that have negatively impacted on every part of their lives, often leaving them exposed, disadvantaged, excluded and at risk of exploitation.

This is an exciting opportunity to work alongside Hampton Trust Practitioners and to shape and deliver interventions to young people aged 13-17 years old within schools and community settings. We also deliver criminal justice interventions to young adult offenders aged 18-24 years and we have a strong ethos of supporting staff to develop skills and to contribute to delivery of the range of Hampton Trust interventions.
