Road crash charity launches into Hertfordshire

A CHARITY which offers support to families affected by road accident deaths is launching its service into Hertfordshire.

The Road Victims Trust, which was founded in 1995, is now extending its emotional and practical support service for those coping with bereavement into the county.

Co-ordinator Frances Bourne said: “The Road Victims Trust has 15 years experience of working with people affected by road death.

“What we offer is a comprehensive support service that covers emotional and practical support as well as preparation for and support at inquests and court hearings, aiming to be with the individual or family for as long as it is useful.

“We realise there are many people in Hertfordshire for whom such a service was not available when they were affected by a fatal road collision.
