Police and Crime Commissioners comment on ADAPT Programme
Laura Franklin, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight said:
"No person should be subjected to domestic abuse and violence. As Assistant Police and Crime Commissioner for the Isle of Wight tackling domestic abuse on the Island is a priority area.
"The Hampton Trust is one of the key local agencies providing services to victims and perpetrators. Its services promote safe and healthy relationships and delivers much needed support to residents on the Island. The Adapt programme is a proactive approach that recognises the importance of stopping the cycle of domestic abuse and violence.
"The work of partners such as the Hampton Trust is hugely important to reducing abuse on the Isle of Wight and I will continue to support and work with partners to achieve this."
Simon Hayes, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight said,
“No one should live in fear of violence and abuse, especially within their own home and from people who are supposed to love and care for them. Domestic abuse is not acceptable and I am committed to doing everything possible to stop abuse taking place behind closed doors on the Isle of Wight.
“Through my commissioning plan, I am supporting partners such as the Hampton Trust to deliver key services to those affected by domestic abuse. Its work with perpetrators and victims is integral to breaking to cycle of abuse.”
