Resources

If you or someone you know is concerned about potential spying, monitoring, or stalking, trust your instincts and find a safe way to learn about your local resources and options. Please note that if you think someone may be monitoring your device, that person would be able to see any searches for help or resources. If you’re concerned about this, use another device – one that the person has not had physical access to – when reaching out for information or assistance. If you are in immediate danger, contact your local authorities.

Perpetrators wanting to take responsibility for their actions and looking to change their behaviours are welcome to get in touch with WWP EN via info@work-with-perpetrators.eu. We will be able to help with referrals to local member organisations, qualified to support those seeking to stop their violence.
