Brake in the UK campaigns to prevent death and injury on the roads and also supports people who are bereaved or affected by serious injury in a road crash.

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 counselling, advocacy and signposting to other appropriate agencies.
Brake's online support guides are 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.
