Help and support
Our primary purpose is to support victims of stalking
Stalking is a devastating crime for victims. Its effects can be hugely traumatic. At Action Against Stalking, we understand the psychological, physical, emotional and financial impact a stalker can have. We provide fully-accredited professional care and support for victims as they seek to regain control of their lives.
Action Against Stalking offers a unique Throughcare Stalking Support Service to highly vulnerable and often very traumatised stalking victims.
We aim to help victims return to normal functioning through an Empowerment Model, offering psychological support from qualified, experienced and accredited professionals, developing resilience in the aftermath of abuse.
Victims of stalking can suffer mental and physical ill-health, and many experience the destruction of their personal and professional life. Stalkers often recruit others to carry out their campaigns and stalking can escalate to physical assault, sexual assault and even murder.
We work with multiple agencies to provide a wholly integrated throughcare service. We bridge the victim and the justice system, encouraging reporting of the crime, helping with escalation to police where required. We signpost victims to other support agencies where appropriate.
