National Stalking Awareness Week
This year we are asking everyone to show their support for victims of stalking by supporting our ‘Stalking Counts’ campaign.
We will be releasing new research which shows how many cases of stalking are recorded by the police and also how few specialist stalking services exist and we will be calling for change.
National Stalking Helpline staff will also be available for a live Q&A for one hour on the morning of Thursday 21st April.

National Stalking Awareness Week 2015
IS IT STALKING? This is the vital question being addressed in a new awareness film being released by Suzy Lamplugh Trust (who run the National Stalking Helpline) to launch National Stalking Awareness Week (20 -24 April 2015)
With 1 in 6 women and 1 in 12 men being stalked at some point in their lives (CSEW2013) the film helps to raise awareness amongst the the public about what stalking is and to make clear it’s not romantic, trivial or funny, its worrying, serious and illegal.
The two-minute animated film, ‘This is Stalking’ looks at what stalking is and the different ways it can manifest as well as offering practical help and support for people who are experiencing it, through the National Stalking Helpline.
Stalking is a very common and sinister problem in the UK but there are still a lot of myths around it that need to be dispelled, which is why this film is so important.
As well as releasing the film, for every day of Stalking Awareness Week we will be sharing a myth and fact about stalking, each day, via social media and encouraging other people to share them as widely as possible. You can follow us @live_life_safe and @talkingstalking and we will be using the hashtags #NSAW2015 and #Thisisstalking
We are pleased to be sharing the film through the online donation platform Givey and we are urging everyone to watch and share our film and if they possibly can donate some money help us reach more people through the National Stalking Helpline.
