It’s National Stalking Awareness Week 25-29 April held to raise awareness around Stalking.
This year, the campaign, led by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, is called Bridging The Gap. It highlights the vital role of advocates helping victims of stalkers navigate the criminal justice system. The Suzy Lamplugh Trust have published the findings of its ‘Bridging the Gap’ report, which can be viewed by clicking here.
Stalking is illegal. It is a pattern of repeated, unwanted behaviour that may or may not be threatening, but causes the person distress. It can include being followed or constantly harassed by another person, such as receiving unwanted phone calls, texts, and messages, and you should report it.
