Police Spies Out Of Lives is a support group specifically set up to give practical help and support to the eight women who are currently taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police and ACPO.

It is important to note the following:
– this case is not the only legal action concerning undercover policing in the UK;
– there are many other people who have been affected by undercover policing, some of whom may never be able to bring cases or seek justice through the courts.

We extend our solidarity and sympathy to all those affected, and to all those coming to terms with systematic abuse by the police. However, for practical and legal reasons, we are unable to offer practical support to anyone other than those involved in this specific case.

People involved in other cases may form their own support groups or affinity groups. In fact, because of the deeply personal nature of the police’s political intrusion into people’s lives, we strongly recommend developing affinity groups and small support groups to help individuals come to terms with what has happened, and to help deal with any legal processes – or deal with the lack of legal process.

If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by undercover policing, you may find this page helpful.

Police Spies Out of Lives makes no claim to act on behalf of, or speak on behalf of, other people who have been affected by undercover policing.
