Afternoon Tea for #RVT @roadvictimstrus #charity Sept 17th

Afternoon-Tea-PosterThe Road Victims Trust is a registered charity offering a range of free support services to residents of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire who have been affected by fatal road collisions.

Each year about one thousand seven hundred and fifty people die as a result of road collisions on the UK’s roads. This represents an enormous loss. Each person killed or injured will be someone’s parent, partner, child, a favourite relative or best friend.

The need to provide effective, personal support to those affected by death or life changing injuries resulting from road collisions is a significant issue. Who can provide that essential personal support?

There are formal legal processes that follow a serious road collision that involve the Police, Coroner, Crown Prosecution Service and personal injury lawyers. However, the work to complete these legal processes does not include the provision of specialist emotional and practical support that is so often needed by victims following the collision. Victims include bereaved individuals and families, those that were involved in the collision or who witnessed it.

The Road Victims Trust seeks to fill the gap by providing support for the bereaved and people otherwise affected by road death or life changing injuries, who are resident in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

The Road Victims Trust was founded in 1995 in Bedfordshire and is a non-profit-making charitable organisation. All the services it provides are free. There is limited statutory funding of the Trust and the majority of the costs are raised by grants, donations and fundraising events.
