Victim support

Brake’s National Road Victim Service is a specialist service for people affected by road death and serious injury and the professionals supporting them.

Every 20 minutes, someone is killed or seriously injured on a British road. Each crash is a tragedy, each crash is preventable.

Help us achieve our goal of zero road deaths and injuries

If you’d like to help us develop our support services and reach more people, please make a donation or see our fundraising ideas.
