National Stalking Helpline

The first dedicated information and advice service for people affected by stalking or harassment started operating from 29th April 2010.

Launched as a result of a collaboration between Network for Surviving Stalking, Protection Against Stalking and Suzy Lamplugh Trust, the helpline offers information, advice and guidance for anyone affected by stalking and harassment via a telephone line (0808 802 0300)

Helpline staff will offer practical advice to people about personal safety, how to collect evidence and what to do about the different stalking behaviours - such as silent phone calls or malicious communications.

It will also provide information about the two different legal routes that can be taken under the Protection Against Harassment Act.

Whilst the service aims to assist anyone who has a query regarding stalking, people are generally advised to contact their local police if they feel they are being harassed and to call 999 if they feel they are in immediate danger.

The helpline will be open during business hours and calls will cost the standard national rate.
