SAfEE Campaigner

Stalking poses a significant threat in the UK, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men will experience stalking in their lifetime (ONS 2019).

Whilst in recent years, stalking has received significant attention from the media, criminal justice system, and beyond, it is still a crime that is not identified, is often minimised, under-reported and misunderstood.

Stalking is a pattern of unwanted, fixated and obsessive behaviour, the impact on victims is severe, it can cause high levels of alarm and distress, affect mental and physical health and in high-risk cases, can lead to violence and death.
