Brake works to prevent road casualties, make communities safer, and support families bereaved in road crashes.
Brake launched in 2011 and since then has developed a number of projects and services. We have provided free support resources to over 1,000 families bereaved in crashes. Hundreds of organisations participate in Road Safety Week every year.
By donating or fundraising for Brake you are helping us to continue providing free support books, and to develop further services to provide specialised support to people bereaved and injured in crashes. You're also helping to run educational initiatives like Road Safety Week.
Brake is part of the international charity Brake, started in the UK in 1995.
Brake runs educational campaigns and initiatives including Road Safety Week, which encourages everyone to get involved in road safety.
We provide tools for educators to support teaching road safety.
Brake produces free support resources for people bereaved in crashes: a picture book for children to read with parents/carers; and a book on coping with grief for adults.
