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 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. Once we receive your referral we will arrange an assessment appointment with you to work out what is the most helpful way forward. Following assessment, you will be offered the most appropriate intervention for your personal circumstances. We offer different types of group work and also intensive individual support if this is more suitable. During your first meeting with us we will explain your options. ADAPT is a group work programme that you might be offered a place on and below is an outline of this:
ADAPT (Accredited Domestic Abuse Prevention Training)
Our domestic violence prevention programme is a 20-week group work modular programme where individuals can join at the start of a new module to prevent long waiting lists. 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.
Throughout your time with The Hampton Trust if you have concerns about anything you are able to access dedicated Mentors who can support you throughout the programme. 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. For further support review our My Fair Arguing Guidelines and our Time out plan.
Integrated Victim Safety Service
When you access the service you must be willing to provide details of your current or ex-partner. A member of the team will then make contact to check in with them.
Where do we work?
When we receive your referral we will contact you to arrange an assessment interview (approximately 2 hours). This will be during office hours at a suitable location. At the end of the assessment, we will suggest the most appropriate pathway from our range of interventions. Our ADAPT groups run at the following locations:
Eastleigh – Tuesday evenings 18.15 to 20.15
Havant – Tuesday evenings from 18.15 to 20.15
Basingstoke – Thursday evenings from 18.15 to 20.15
Other interventions will be delivered in an agreed location.
