Purple Door volunteering vacancy – Hampton Trust

The Hampton Trust was established in 1996 to work with court mandated domestic violence perpetrators, and has considerable experience and expertise in domestic abuse. 

Working at a national and local strategic level to address violence and abuse, they undertake and participate in research promoting innovative evidenced-based solutions.

They are a charity offering national award winning programmes, and work in partnership with statutory and voluntary sector organisations to develop needs led services and identify gaps in provision. The Hampton Trust is ISO 9001 accredited which requires rigorous annual review.

Their ADAPT perpetrator programme has gone on to achieve Respect accreditation status.  This involved meeting 100 national competences, which are supported across government, the Association of Directors of Children’s Services, CAFCASS (Children & Family Courts Advisory Support Service) and major national domestic abuse charities. Their domestic abuse division has since expanded to include: Independent Sexual Violence Advisors – Training for professionals on domestic abuse issues – Domestic abuse general awareness programme in Winchester HMP – Domestic abuse educational lessons delivered /in Guernsey.

The LINX Programme a 12 week group work intervention aimed at building empathy, resilience and pro social behaviour in young people who are victims of domestic abuse and in, or at risk of, entering the criminal justice system.

CARA a national pilot in partnership with Hampshire Constabulary and Cambridge University. Agreed by Department of Public Protection and Association of Chief Police Officers, it is an experiment aimed at reducing domestic abuse offending and repeat victimisation.  Individuals that previously would have received a ‘simple caution’ are instead directed to attend two domestic abuse workshops designed and delivered by The Hampton Trust.

Their Isle of Wight Programmes support young people and adults who are socially, educationally excluded and affected by mental distress in ecology and heritage based programmes.
