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, (trading as Paladin-National Stalking Advocacy Service),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.

The Paladin phone-line will be closed every Tuesday afternoon between 13:00 – 17:00 for training and casework purposes. Please leave us a voicemail or email us on info@paladinservice.co.uk and we shall respond to your enquiry at our earliest convenience.
