Universal expert stalking advocacy support for all victims driving lasting societal change
Paladin NSAS is a trauma-informed service established in 2013, to assist high risk victims of stalking in England and Wales. Our unique trained 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.
Paladins NSAS Objectives include:
- Provide trauma informed support, advice and advocacy to high risk victims
- Raise awareness of dangers and risks of stalking
- Provide university accredited ISAC training and CPD training to professionals
- Analyse the application of the stalking law
- Campaign on behalf of victims of stalking
- Develop a Knowledge Hub - a single port of call for any victim of stalking seeking the best support and safety advice, and for professionals seeking information about how to respond to stalking and the principles of an effective advocacy service
If you need to report an incident of stalking call 101.
If you are in danger dial 999
Paladin NSAS amplifies the voice of the victim within the criminal and civil justice system, as many victims feel isolated and terrified. Some pay with their lives.
Paladin provides a high level of advocacy to anyone at risk of serious harm or homicide from a stalker. We give initial advice and offer to complete a detailed assessment to anyone who calls our service and is affected by stalking. Sometimes we call this 'high risk' and it is based on what we learn from the detailed assessment. However in all situations we aim to improve access to the right kind of support for each person and improve co-ordinated working between specialist services to keep each survivor feeling safer.
Stalking is a crime.
Yet victims are still not being heard or receieving the response they deserve and need to be safe. Perpetrators continue with impunity. With your help and support we can do more. There are many ways you can help to keep victims safe. Make a differnce to someones life now
