From Out of the Shadows - Stalking and Harassment and your experience in the Criminal Justice System
Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this survey for Protection Against Stalking www.protectionagainststalking.org
We are leading a campaign for change within the Criminal Justice System for better support for victims of stalking and harassment, the review of the Protection from Harassment Act, 1997 and sentencing guidelines and review of the training for professionals in stalking including risk, identification, assessment and management.
Your voice will be used to influence change within the Criminal Justice System. The evidence from this survey will be used to inform an Independent Inquiry set up by Parliamentarians (MPs and Peers) to examine the victim's experience of the Criminal Justice System, the support available to victims and whether there is a need for stalking law reform.
This survey should only take about 10 minutes of your time. You can opt out at any time. Your answers will be completely anonymous. The anonymous survey results will be published in the Parliamentary Stalking Campaign Bulletin and the final Inquiry report.
We are aware of the long term nature of stalking and that this survey relates to past and, perhaps, ongoing incidents which you may still find upsetting. If you find you do experience distress you can contact The National Stalking Helpline which is open during business hours on 0300 636 0300 alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
You may want to submit more information about your experience to Protection Against Stalking or join the campaign.If you do please e-mail us on completion of the survey and if you have any questions about the survey, please contact us at email@example.com
