This is a form of domestic abuse usually where the parties do not meet the requirements to bring proceedings under the domestic violence criteria because, for example, they have not lived together, have not been married to each other and do not have children together.  It is possible to be abused by someone you do not know.

The Protection From Harassment Act 1997 provides protection for people suffering abuse because they are being harassed by people they are not in any form of relationship with.  The definition of harassment is very broad and covers a wide range of behaviour. It can include stalking, cyber bullying or abuse and neighbour harassment.

Harassment covers a wide range of behaviours of an offensive nature. It is commonly understood as behaviour intended to disturb or upset, and it is characteristically repetitive. In the legal sense, it is intentional behaviour which is found threatening or disturbing.  Sexual refers to persistent and unwanted sexual advances, typically in the workplace, where the consequences of refusing are potentially very disadvantageous to the victim.
