Paladin was launched in 2013 after our Founder Laura Richards and other changed the law to create a specific criminal offence of stalking.
Paladin uses the Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Harassment and Honour based Violence Risk Checklist (DASH 2009) which was developed by Laura Richards on behalf of ACPO and in partnership with Safe Lives (formerly Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse (CAADA)) to inform early identification, intervention and prevention. This tool is also used by thousands of professionals on a daily basis to help them deal effectively with victims of stalking, domestic abuse and honour based violence.
Paladin amplifies the voice of the victim within the criminal and civil justice system, as many victims feel isolated and terrified. Some pay with their lives. Paladin provides a high level of advocacy to anyone at risk of serious harm or homicide from a stalker.
