Paladin National Stalking Advocacy Service

Paladin was established to assist high risk victims of stalking in England Wales in July 2013 following the highly successful Stalking Law Reform Campaign in Parliament spearheaded by Laura Richards and others. 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.

Aims of our service:
Provide advice to victims of stalking and advocacy to high risk victims of stalking
Raise awareness of dangers and risks of stalking
Provide training to professionals
Scrutinise the new stalking laws
Campaign on behalf of victims
Develop a victim network of support

We are as national service and provide advice to victims and professionals

  1. Paladin is the voice of the victim within the criminal and civil justice system, as many they 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.
