Stalking

In 2015 Ayrshire College (Ayr Campus) held a poster competition as part of a live brief for graphic design/communication students in partnership with Ann Moulds, founder of Scotland Against Stalking. The brief was to design a poster which would be distributed throughout the UK to raise awareness of stalking – this poster continues to be used today to raise awareness of stalking as part of the ‘stalking awareness week’ that is held during the month of April.

South Ayrshire Multi-Agency Partnership to tackle Violence Against Women and Children (MAP) is an affiliate of Scotland’s Scottish National Stalking Group.

Since 2009, the Partnership has been working closely with Ann Moulds, founder of the Scottish National Stalking Group to highlight the seriousness of stalking as a crime and this has been carried out through the promotion of National Stalking Awareness Day within our partner agencies and local community.

Thanks to Ann and the Action Scotland Against Stalking campaign, which is supported by South Ayrshire MAP, new legislation was introduced which has given Scotland one of the most powerful anti-stalking laws in the world.

The affiliation between the MAP and other members of the Scottish National Stalking Group will now help ensure that – at both local and national levels – precedents will be set in addressing stalking and its impact on individuals and communities.
