A road death is not a normal death, it is sudden, violent, unexpected and premature. Losing a loved one in a crash is devastating. Lives are shattered, and some never recover from the trauma. Family breakdown, job loss, depression and even suicide can be the unfortunate consequences of losing a loved one in this way.
RoadPeace has been campaigning since 1992 to change this, and is a leading charity working for people bereaved and injured on the roads. They provide emotional and practical support and advocacy.
RoadPeace operates a national helpline that provides support and information to those affected by road death and injury. They also work closely with other support organisations, and can refer people onto other sources of specialist support and information.
Their website offers detailed information guides and briefing sheets that you can access for free.
