Resources for professionals

This page is intended for any professional working to support victims post crash. This includes paramedics, police officers and other individuals such as charity or social workers.

Who we support

RoadPeace is the national charity for road crash victims in the UK. We provide information and support services to people bereaved by road crashes, no matter what their relationship to the person killed. 

We also support those seriously injured in road crashes and their carers. Our support can extend to witnesses of crashes.

Make a referral

The form below is for use by professionals only to refer victims post crash to RoadPeace support services. On receipt of this form RoadPeace will contact the person referred and conduct a needs assessment to discuss what services might be suitable for them. Services include one to one support, allocation of a befriender, attending regional meetings or taking part in remembrance events.

You should complete the form as fully and accurately as possible. You must have gained consent from the person you are referring to share this information. Once we have received this referral RoadPeace will contact the person referred. Without explicit consent we will not contact you, the referrer, to update you on any support we have offered or what services the person has accessed.

Attend one of our remembrance events

RoadPeace understands the importance of remembering family and friends who have died and we encourage remembrance in a number of different ways. We have several different events over the course of the year which are an opportunity for families to get together and remember. Emergency Services professionals and other colleagues supporting victims are welcome to attend our events. 

Every year on the second Saturday of August, during National Road Victim month, a ceremony of remembrance is held at RoadPeace Wood at the National Merial Arboretum.  

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is held every year on the third Sunday of November. On this date local RoadPeace groups mark the occasion with services in their area. 

For more information about remembrance and specific events see https://www.roadpeace.org/remembering-lives-lost/
