Throughout the RoadPeace Challenge week of action – May 13-19, 2024 - emergency services, safer roads partnerships, schools, businesses and communities were tasked with running, cycling, walking or horse riding 1,766 miles to honour the 1,766 people reported killed on UK roads in 2022. But we reached this ambitious target within 48 hours!
Together, we covered an incredible 16958.103 miles in seven days
Thank you so much for your support!

Speak to a Befriender

Our established befriending service puts callers in touch with others who have previously been through a similar experience to themselves. This scheme is powered by great good will and a mass of very devastating experience. It is a very humane service and is at the heart of what RoadPeace was set up to do.

A befriender is a member of RoadPeace who offers continuing telephone support to callers referred by the RoadPeace helpline. Befrienders are not counsellors and provide predominantly emotional support. Telephone befriending ensures that people who have been bereaved or injured in a crash can be put in touch with someone who really does know how they feel, wherever they are calling from.

Victims who use our support services are encouraged to contact our support team on 0800 160 1069 or email if they have any concerns or issues

We apologise that due to the high demand for this service, there may be a short delay before we are able to allocate you a befriender.
