We understand that acknowledging that your behaviour has been abusive is a very difficult thing to do and that this is the first step in a journey to create a healthy, non-abusive relationship.  Our services have helped many people over the years improve their relationships and to avoid using abuse.

If you live in Hampshire, Southampton or the Isle of Wight then you are able to access our services via a referral from another agency such as Children’s Services or by referring yourself.

We will arrange an assessment with you and together we will work out what is the most helpful way forward. We offer a variety of interventions including individual work, groupwork and additional support with our Headway Team.

ADAPT (Accredited Domestic Abuse Prevention Training)

Our domestic abuse prevention programme is a 20-week group work intervention, with up to 26 sessions. It is split into 2 parts and you may do one or both parts depending on your situation.

The sessions are designed to help you reflect on your relationship and the impact of your behaviour on yourself and others.  It is designed to give you strategies and skills to build more respectful relationships. The group works on different aspects of violence and control, and on skills for better relationships and parenting.


At anytime whilst working with Hampton Trust you may be able to access additional support with our Headway Team. The Headway practitioners will work with you to look at other areas of your life that may be impacting your ability to make lasting changes to your behaviour, and to access other services to support with this.


When working with Hampton Trust you are able to access dedicated Mentors who can support you. Our mentoring service provides regular calls to all clients and can be accessed even after the intervention has been completed. Mentors are contactable all year round. Mentors are volunteers who have completed interventions with us. Find out more.

Integrated Victim Safety Service

When you access the service, you must be willing to provide details of your current or ex-partner. A dedicated partner worker will contact them and support them during your engagement with us.

Where do we work?

Our interventions are delivered within community settings across Hampshire and The Isle of Wight. Some of our interventions are delivered virtually and whether this intervention is suitable for you will be discussed at assessment.
