The Hampton Trust was founded in 1996 to deliver domestic violence perpetrator programmes within the criminal justice system. We have since developed a range of community based interventions for families experiencing domestic abuse alongside providing innovative criminal justice responses
We are committed to a world in which every family is free from violence, abuse, isolation and exploitation. We strive to make our communities safe places for everyone to live and promote opportunities for children to thrive.
Our Board of Trustees oversee the strategic management of The Hampton Trust and bring together a huge range of experience and knowledge; helping make decisions that shape the future of the organisation.
Our management team has a range of knowledge and experience linked to the delivery of people based services. We are passionate about delivering innovative interventions that deliver positive outcomes for individuals and their families.

What makes us different

We are ambitious in our goals and the way in which we help those affected by domestic abuse. To tackle the root cause of domestic abuse we work directly with individuals who are being abusive. We make it our mission and our focus to identify the complexities behind violent, coercive and controlling behaviour to end the cycle of domestic abuse and reduce repeat victimisation.

Too often the value of a perpetrator led approach is overlooked in favour of victim services due to the lack of evidence and lack of funding. Our decades of experience working with perpetrators, and subsequent results, has reinforced the belief that people can change. We have access to, and intelligence on, perpetrators outside of criminal justice that no other agencies have, enabling us to measure success rates as well being the first to intervene to ensure victim safety.

We know that responding to domestic abuse is a challenge across all frontline services and we can’t do this alone. We work with a range of stakeholders across the voluntary and statutory sector to deliver what we know works.  We are fortunate to have excellent partnerships with those sharing our passion to make a difference, no matter how hard it seems.

We strongly believe the current criminal justice response to offenders needs reviewing. If we are to address the vulnerabilities associated with offending , and ultimately reduce offence rates, it requires a significant shake up. To that end we are not afraid to test new approaches evident in our innovative criminal justice interventions and the programmes we offer young adult offenders to consider their choices. We are currently exploring a trauma informed response to working with females in the criminal justice system.

We greatly appreciate the support of
