Everyone needs to recognise that stalking is a seriously distressing and potentially life-threatening crime. Stalking behaviour needs to result in immediate action both to protect the victim and to deal effectively with the perpetrator.
Alice Ruggles was murdered in 2016, aged just 24, by an ex-boyfriend following a relentless campaign of stalking. You can read Alice's story here.
The Alice Ruggles Trust’s mission is to help prevent what happened to Alice happening to others. We need to bring stalking to an end. You can read more about what we have been doing here.
The Alice Ruggles Trust is a member of the National Stalking Consortium, a group of like-minded charities working together to tackle stalking and help reduce the risks for victims.
