Become a Friend of Brake

Janine LeslieWe are calling on people across the UK, who feel passionately about road safety, to become a Friend of Brake.  Our Friends of Brake are the face of Brake within communities.   Brake is a small charity, run by a team of dedicated staff in our national office, but we need YOUR help to reach out to even more people across communities.
