Supporting road crash victims and families in south Wales

We’re proud sponsors of RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims – and a Legal Panel member.

Thanks to our support, the charity will be introducing two new support groups for bereaved families and injured victim in South Wales.

Local groups provide a safe space for crash victims to come together for mutual support. Support group meetings for bereaved families will offer bereaved families peer support through meeting others who have suffered a similar experience. RoadPeace will also be piloting a new support group for injured victims.

Due to the pandemic and current restrictions, all meetings will be hosted online using Zoom. This will be regularly reviewed in line with government guidance.

Seeking a Volunteer Co-ordinator

RoadPeace knows, from supporting members for over 25 years, how important it is for road crash victims to speak to those that have been similarly affected. That’s why they are looking for someone who has experience of a road death and would be happy to volunteer some of their time to train as the South Wales Local Group Coordinator and lead the meetings for the support group for the bereaved alongside a trained counsellor who will facilitate meetings.

Full training and on-going supervision will be provided by RoadPeace.

If you are able to offer some time and would like to support those struggling to cope with the aftermath of a road crash please get in touch with Belina Rauli (Director of Support Services at RoadPeace) by emailing [email protected].

Attending a Support Group

Support group meetings offer bereaved families and injured victims an opportunity to meet others similarly affected and who truly understand the impact of road crashes on those left behind or those suffering from the awful aftermath of being involved in a crash themselves.

“Gaining support after the awful aftermath of losing a loved one in a crash through those similarly affected has been a lifeline for our family. No one else seems to understand the pain and grief that engulfs you”. Bereaved mother

Meetings will be held bi-monthly for each group on the first Wednesday of the month.

If you would like to attend a meeting, please contact RoadPeace at [email protected] or call the helpline on 0845 4500 355.
