About the service

Accessing the service
Individuals can be referred to the Multi-Agency Stalking Project through their Offender Manager, Mental Health Team or a Police Officer from Hampshire Constabulary. In order to access support from the Multi-Agency Stalking Project, a person needs to be over 18 years old and living in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight.
For an informal discussion regarding a possible referral, please call the team on 02382 310 800 (Mon-Fri from 9am-5pm).
The Hampshire Multi-Agency Stalking Project is unable to provide direct intervention to individuals currently under police investigation, but advice and consultation to those caring for and managing them can be offered.
The service does not care co-ordinate. The referring service needs to hold the case whilst intervention is provided.
