Brake’s support services are for adults and children who have been bereaved or suffered a serious injury in a road crash. This includes boyfriends and girlfriends of people who have died and close friends too. Our objective is to provide you with emotional support services, information and advocacy to help you to recover and deal with the many procedures that follow death or serious injury on the road. Our services are also available to anyone who cares for people bereaved or injured. This includes, for example, police family liaison officers, emergency service workers, counsellors, and teachers. We can help you to provide the best possible help to road crash victims, and also support you if you were involved in the immediate aftermath of a fatal or serious crash and feel traumatised as a result. Our free book for children bereaved by road crashes, Someone has Died in a Road Crash, is full of colourful, warm illustrations and text that helps adults to support children and answer their questions, and is best read in its printed form. Call the Brake helpline for a copy of this book if you care for a bereaved child. The Brake helpline is open 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday (opening times can occasionally vary due to staff training).
