SNSG is the first anti-stalking forum of its kind in the UK. It was founded and launched by Ann Moulds in 2011 who continues to chair the group.
The overall aim is to provide strategic direction, leadership, and momentum to progressing the actions required to integrate the Stalking Act Sec 39.
The formation of the SNSG forum is a proactive and innovative approach towards helping address some of these complicated issues. For victims of stalking, it is recognition that their voices have been heard by the relevant national organisations, and their need for safety and support will be the driving force behind the good work this group intends to achieve.
Members of the SNSG comprise some of Scotland's key authoritative figures on stalking from across public and private sectors:
Action Against Stalking
Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS)
Crown Office Procurator Fiscal Service
Scottish Women's Aid
Victim Support Scotland
Scottish Universities & Colleges
South Ayrshire Council Multi Agency Partnership
Rape Crisis Scotland
Suzy Lamplugh Trust London
SNSG is supported by Scottish Government and the Scottish Executive. SNSG is part of the UK Stalking Alliance alongside key Criminal Justice and victim support agencies in England & Wales. It holds close links with the Home Office London, Violent and Youth Crime Prevention Unit (VYCPU) as well as the Crime and Policing Group to help raise awareness to stalking across the UK.
