National Stalking Awareness Week

It is National Stalking Awareness Week, and here at Veritas we are gearing up for a week of advocacy, education, and action.

This year, the theme is “Join Forces Against Stalking,” highlighting the importance of collaborative efforts in supporting victims of stalking.

Stalking is a serious crime that can have devastating effects on its victims, both mentally and physically. It often requires a comprehensive and coordinated response from various agencies to ensure victims receive the support and protection they need. From Police to healthcare professionals, effective multi-agency working is crucial every step of the way, from the point of disclosure through to conviction and beyond.

Throughout National Stalking Awareness Week, we will be shining a spotlight on the vital role that collaboration among agencies plays in addressing stalking. We’ll be showcasing examples of best practice and success stories that demonstrate the positive impact of multi-agency working on victim outcomes.

We invite you to join us in our efforts to combat stalking during National Stalking Awareness Week 2024. Together, let’s raise awareness, drive change, and ensure that victims receive the support and justice they deserve.

Stay tuned for updates, stories, and insights throughout the week as we work together to “Join Forces Against Stalking.”
