The Road Victims Trust provides free, confidential, emotional and practical support to those affected by fatal road collisions.
We have experience of listening to and talking with people following fatal road collisions. Our team members are selected and trained to work with the effects of a road death and the legal and coronial procedures that follow.
The Road Victims Trust was founded in Bedfordshire in 1995 and extended and developed its support services to Hertfordshire residents in 2010.
A further extension to provide services to Cambridgeshire took place in April 2013.
We provide regular, weekly emotional and practical support for individuals and families in their homes, by telephone or at our offices, for as long as it is useful.
The Road Victims Trust offers space to express the whole range of feelings that come with the loss and horror following a fatal road collision. Time to discuss the impact of the collision that is a life changing event for all those involved. Information on the investigation, inquest and court hearings as well as preparation for and support at inquests and hearings. Access to a list of qualified lawyers who will provide a free initial consultation.
The Road Victims Trust are used because we recognise:
this is a difficult and potentially confusing time; there is so much going on it’s hard to take it all in; the rollercoaster range of emotions victims and witnesses feel; there are many practical tasks still that have to be carried out; and dealing with police and court procedures and officials can be puzzling and upsetting.
The Road Victims Trust works in partnership with the police forces in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire as part of their wish that those affected are supported following a fatal road collision.
The Trust is a registered charity that provides this free support.
