Who are the Suzy Lamplugh Trust?
The Suzy Lamplugh Trust is the UK’s pioneering personal safety charity, established in 1986, following the disappearance of 25-year-old Suzy Lamplugh, an estate agent who went to meet a client and never returned. The Trust is widely regarded as field experts in lone working and personal safety training and continues to work towards reducing the risk of violence and aggression by educating, campaigning and supporting people to take steps to avoid, mitigate or manage risks at work, as well as across all aspects of their lives. The Trust’s vision is a society in which people are safer, and feel safer, from violence and aggression, so they can live life to the full.
Suzy Lamplugh Trust works closely with private, public and third-sector organisations, including the Metropolitan Police, NHS, the Home Office, probation services, property developers, estate agents, retail, housing associations and the construction industry.
The Trust also offers the “National Stalking Helpline - 0808 802 0300”, the first in the UK and worldwide, providing specialist information and guidance to people affected by stalking. Helpline workers are trained to guide victims of stalking through the options available to them and can provide information on topics ranging from the law to personal safety and gathering evidence.
Suzy Lamplugh Trust campaigned for the introduction of the Protection of Harassment Act 1997, which was amended in 2012 to make stalking a criminal offence for the first time. Suzy Lamplugh Trust has run the National Stalking Helpline since its launch in 2010 and responds to over 4,500 calls and emails from victims of stalking each year.”
