Who we are

Brake is a road safety charity dedicated to preventing road death and injury.

Brake exist to stop the five deaths and 66 serious injuries that happen on UK roads every single day and to support families bereaved and seriously injured in road crashes.

Brake run awareness raising campaigns, community education programmes, events (such as Road Safety Week) and a Fleet Safety Forum (providing advice to companies).

Brake's support division offers help to road crash victims through a helpline and other services.   We offer practical and emotional support through a helpline and through support literature that is handed out by police following every fatal road crash in the UK.

Our work includes educating different road users - from children and their parents, to young people learning to drive, to professional drivers - through resources, training and events.

We co-ordinate national road safety week every November and provide free community training on different road safety topics.
