The National Stalking Helpline


The National Stalking Helpline is run by Suzy Lamplugh Trust. Suzy Lamplugh Trust is the UK’s pioneering personal safety charity and leading stalking authority, established in 1986 following the disappearance of 25-year-old Suzy Lamplugh whilst at work. We work towards creating a society in which people are safer – and feel safer – from the prevalence of stalking, harassment, aggression and violence, achieved through Supporting people; Education; and Campaigning. Our stalking helpline advice and advocacy service offers support and advice to thousands of victims of stalking every year.

Helpline volunteer job description

We are looking for dedicated, enthusiastic and empathetic volunteers to respond to emails from victims of stalking. Full training will be given so previous experience in these areas is not mandatory.
Skills required:

  • Excellent writing skills
  • Empathy
  • Be able to commit to one day a week (around 6 hours) for at least 9 months

What support/training will you receive?

Volunteers will receive training in providing support via email, criminal and civil legislation relating to harassment and stalking, domestic violence, stalker typologies, personal safety and helpline policies and procedures. Volunteers will work alongside a Helpline Advisor every shift for support and debriefing purposes, and will have regular 1-1’s for support.

What will you get in return?
    • Comprehensive training in issues surrounding stalking and harassment.
    • Making a difference by playing an active role in supporting people affected by stalking and harassment.

Amazon Prime Membership Scam

Amazon Prime Membership Scam

Amazon Prime Membership Scam

Dear Member,


One of our members received this yesterday and wanted to bring it to your attention so you don’t get caught out

Yesterday I received an email confirming my order that day for Platinum Prime at a cost of £79.80. The email went on to advise me that if I wanted to cancel the order I had 24 hours and should use the link provided. That link took me to a screen which mirrored the Amazon Prime log in screen and invited me to log in. I didn’t log in as I know that Amazon never asks you to contact them about your account or orders by using a link in an email.


If I had logged in then the scammers would have captured those details.


I forwarded the email to Amazon and deleted it.

Payroll and Change of Address

Payroll and Change of Address


Payroll and Change of Address

Payroll has asked that the following be circulated to you – could you please notify them directly if you have had a change of address in the past year or two

We have received several items of correspondence from the Royal Mail for police pensioners who have moved address but have not notified us of this change.

Comments on the envelopes have included ‘the individual moved several years ago’.

If any pensioner has not received any mail at all from Payroll for a few years the above may well be the reason.

In a very small number of instances, we have been able to contact the pensioner, but the vast majority have no other contact details on their pension record or the telephone number/s are no longer active.

If we have been unable to contact the pensioner, pension payment/s will be suspended until the pensioner has contacted the Payroll department to advise their new contact details. This only applies to those for whom we have received returned mail.

We can accept change of addresses by email or post, but two forms of ID will be required ie, Date of Birth, National Insurance number, first 4 digits of the bank account that the pension is paid into, middle name/s etc.

Email address

A further request please – If pensioners would like their P60’s sent to them via email as opposed to via the post please could you ask if they would advise us by sending an email to the Payroll Department payroll@ecis.police.uk

Hopefully, those not in NARPO will hear about this and contact us too.

Thank you for your help

Kind Regards

NARPO Chelmsford Social Secretary

NARPO Chelmsford Social Secretary

Social Secretary

The Chelmsford Branch is mainly focussed upon the welfare of our members and we feel that developing the social side of our work is an integral part of that process.

We are keen to recruit a volunteer Social Secretary to become part of our Branch Committee. The role will involve developing current events, as well as coming up with new ideas for the future benefit of our members.

Do you have a few hours to spare each month, are you able to generate new ideas and coordinate our social activities? If the answer is ‘Yes’ (or even ‘maybe’), please contact me, Bob Good, for an informal chat and let’s see how we can take the idea forward.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Financial Wellbeing Seminar


Dear Members,

As you know I have been planning and advertising this event for some time now. It will be a really worthwhile seminar and I have staff from Hanson, Wealth Finance travelling down from up North to deliver this today (31st October).

The seminar will take place between 10:30 and 12:30hrs today at The Federation Office, 82 Springfield Road Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 6JY, followed by a light buffet lunch.

Unfortunately, a few people have had to pull out at short notice and I would encourage any of you that are free today to attend this event as I am sure you will find it very interesting and a good opportunity to meet up with old colleagues. Please email me if you are able to attend at Chelmsford Secretary

Hope to see a few of you later.
