About Network for Surviving Stalking
The charity Network for Surviving Stalking represents UK stalking victims and their families. Established by stalking victim and campaigner Tracey Morgan over 10 years ago, NSS listens to the views of victims and professionals and uses their knowledge and experience to help and inform others. NSS helped set up the National Stalking Helpline in April 2010 alongside the charities Protection Against Stalking and Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
Network for Surviving Stalking and the charity Women’s Aid published a practical guide for victims of stalking. ‘Digital stalking: a guide to technology risks for victims’. It’s an important resource for all stalking victims, including the many survivors of domestic violence who are being stalked by an ex-partner. It explains the wide range of technological risks for those being stalked, including use of Spyware on personal computers, tracking devices on mobile phones and tracking of information through social networking sites.

Help Us Get The Right Messages Across About Stalking
Do you think the public understands stalking? Is it accurately portrayed in the media? Do you find that despite stalking now being a criminal offence, there’s still a failure by those in authority to identify what’s happening? Maybe it took you a long time to realise that’s what was happening to you and better access to clearer information would have helped? If you have views on any of the above or ideas about how we can improve communications to the public or amongst partners within the third sector, we want to hear from you.
Network for Surviving Stalking in partnership with Action Scotland Against Stalking, the White Ribbon Campaign and Women’s Aid is leading a national consultation project funded by Awards for All and The Allen Lane Foundation around communications on stalking.
The consultation will be carried out in Autumn/Spring 14/15. If you would like to take part, email us
