Coroners’ Court Support Service

Coroners’ Court Support Service

Grant: £15,400
June 21, 2017

This project is intended to deliver an up-to-date, comprehensive website which will provide the information and support often lacking for bereaved families and witnesses attending a Coroners Court inquest. It will provide information on the inquest process – and the families and/or witnesses role in that process – identify the support available through CCSS in a particular court, refer users to the Helpline and signpost to other organisations for longer-term support.

It will be a key awareness raising tool, enabling the charity to increase public understanding of the process and procedures of an inquest as well as highlighting the help available to those attending an inquest, as a bereaved family member, a lay or professional witness (including the emergency services and health care workers).

The website will also provide an interactive secure space for CCSS volunteers to share experiences, offer advice and support one-another through difficult cases. It will be an accessible space for the charity to communicate with its geographically diverse team of volunteers.

Finally, the website will be a key resource in generating interest and financial support for CCSS, enabling it to achieve its long-term plan of providing a national service, offering a presence in all 92 Coroners’ Courts.
