The Brake helpline supports anyone bereaved or seriously injured through a road crash, whether the crash happened recently or a long time ago. It is also for professionals who need information about how to help people affected by a crash. Support provided includes emotional support, practical and procedural advice, accessing specialist services like legal advice or counseling, advocacy and signposting to other appropriate agencies.
Brake support literature is available on various topics, and includes bereavement guides, serious injury guides and specialist children’s literature. All the literature is current, well-written and easy to understand and explains the many practical, procedural and emotional issues families can face after the death or serious injury of a loved one.
