What Is Stalking?

It is when someone is watching, monitoring or following you!

It can take place between work and home or going to appointments. Sometimes the person stalking you will organise another person to watch or follow you on their behalf.  It is another way that an abuser can control you and keep you feeling afraid of them. The truth is it is illegal for someone to do this to you and is a violation of your rights. Stalking can lead to other violent crimes and even death so report it as soon as it starts.

What to do to look after your safely

Always report stalking to the police

Get yourself an Apprehended Violence Order to protect yourself.

Get a notebook and write down the time, place and event that happens so you have a record of all stalking or abuse events.

Advise your friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours of what is happening to you.

Take a different route to your appointments if possible.

Get security cameras at home to keep you safe.
