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.
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.
If you are concerned about stalking issues please visit the Suzy Lamplugh Trust's national stalking helpline.

Cycling for Alice
Over May bank holiday weekend, eleven of Alice’s extended family and friends will be cycling the Coast-to-Coast in her memory and to raise money for the Trust. The C2C route they are taking runs from Whitehaven in Cumbria across to Newcastle where Alice lived. It is over 140 miles long and passes across the Lake District as well as over the Pennines, so this is quite a challenge—but at least the weather should have improved by then!
To sponsor the cyclists please visit their MyDonate page.
A report published on July 5 has found that people who have suffered repeated harassment or stalking are frequently being let down by the criminal justice system. See our News page.
