Honorary Patron

In 2016, Dame Elish Angiolini became the Honorary Patron of Action Against Stalking (AAS). Originally from Govan, Glasgow, she is currently the Principal of St. Hugh's College, University of Oxford.

Dame Elish is the ideal choice for the role of Honorary Patron as she has shown great empathy and interest in improving the support offered to vulnerable victims and witnesses, in particular where children have been involved. She piloted the Victim Liaison scheme which was subsequently extended throughout Scotland.


We greatly believe that Dame Elish's high profile, substantial track record and standing will help us raise greater awareness on stalking and the rights of victims to be treated justly.

Scottish National Stalking Group

SNSG is the first anti-stalking forum of its kind in the UK. It was founded and launched by Ann Moulds in 2011 who continues to chair the group.​

The overall aim is to provide strategic direction, leadership, and momentum to progressing the actions required to integrate the Stalking Act Sec 39.​

The formation of the SNSG forum is a proactive and innovative approach towards helping address some of these complicated issues. For victims of stalking, it is recognition that their voices have been heard by the relevant national organisations, and their need for safety and support will be the driving force behind the good work this group intends to achieve.​

SNSG is supported by Scottish Government and the Scottish Executive. SNSG is part of the UK Stalking Alliance alongside key Criminal Justice and victim support agencies in England & Wales. It holds close links with the Home Office London, Violent and Youth Crime Prevention Unit (VYCPU) as well as the Crime and Policing Group to help raise awareness to stalking across the UK.
