Paladin – National Stalking Advocacy Service CIC
Paladin assists high risk victims of stalking throughout England and Wales. A number of Independent Stalking Advocacy Caseworkers (ISACs) ensure high risk victims of stalking are supported and that a coordinated community response is developed locally to keep victims and their children safe.
Stalkers steal lives and also take lives, if their behaviour remains unchecked and they are allowed to escalate. In many cases this has resulted in serious violence, rape and in some cases murder. This is about homicide prevention and this unique stalking advocacy service will not only save lives, it will also save money by ensuring a co-ordinated response and the appropriate support for victims.
Before referring a case to Paladin, please visit our referrals page for further information.
Lady Edwina Grosvenor announced as new patron for National Stalking Advocacy Service. For more information see Media and News section.
