About us Join the team Fundraising Volunteer Suzy Lamplugh Trust is the UK's pioneering personal safety charity and leading stalking authority. It was established in 1986, following the disappearance of 25-year-old Suzy Lamplugh, an estate agent who went missing whilst at work. Suzy Lamplugh Trust's vision is a society in which people are safer - and feel safer - from aggression, violence, harassment, and stalking. The organisation works towards reducing the risk of harassment, 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 also has a long history of working within the stalking sector (Violence Against Women and Girls), given that it is believed, and indeed the evidence suggests, that Suzy may have been targeted by a stalker.
