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.
