Stalking and harassment 

Quickly exit this page

Stalking is unwanted, repeated, obsessive and/or controlling behaviours that make someone distressed or scared.

There are many ways stalking can be perpetrated and it is most likely to be someone the victim and survivor already knows well, such as an ex-partner.

The law states that harassment is when a person behaves in a way which is intended to cause distress or alarm. The behaviour must happen on more the one occasion. It can be the same type of behaviour or different types of behaviour on each occasion.
