Event description

Description

The Black Country Stalking Support Service is a new specialist service supporting women and girls affected by stalking across the Black Country. Support is offered to all victims, whether or not they knew their stalker or have been in a relationship with them, and is the first regional service to offer support both inside and outside the context of domestic abuse.

The service is a project of Black Country Women’s Aid, and will also include a range of training, support and partnership working to help agencies and professionals recognise stalking and work with victims.

The launch event will include a range of speakers including:

  • Stalking: the Human Cost: Nick Gazzard of the Hollie Gazzard Trust. Nick is the father of Hollie Gazzard, who was murdered in 2014 after being stalked by an ex-partner. Her family established the Trust to raise awareness of stalking and domestic abuse.
  • Civil Law Options for Victims of Stalking: Karen Payne, National Centre for Domestic Violence
  • The Black Country Stalking Support Service: Nikki Penniston, Black Country Women's Aid
  • The Survivors’ Voice

The Black Country Stalking Support Service is supported with funding from the Tampon Tax.
