Paladin’s Definition of Stalking

“A pattern of unwanted, fixated and obsessive behaviour which is intrusive and causes fear of violence or serious alarm or distress”

Paladin NSAS, a charitable company limited by guarantee.

Paladin is a trauma-informed service established to assist high risk victims of stalking in England and Wales. Our unique team of accredited Independent Stalking Advocacy Caseworkers (ISACs) ensure that high risk victims of stalking are supported and that a coordinated community response is developed locally to keep victims and their children safe.

Stalking is a pattern of repeated and persistent unwanted behaviour that is intrusive and engenders fear, it is when one person becomes fixated or obsessed with another and the attention is unwanted. Threats may not be made but victims may still feel scared. Importantly threats are not required for the criminal offence of stalking to be prosecuted.

Call our helpline on 020 3866 4107.

Due to the high numbers of referrals received Paladin is currently not able to take on referrals from 17th November until end of December 2017. If you are a victim of stalking please report to police (101 for non-emergencies and 999 for emergencies) and look at our advice and guidance on the website.
