Support for victims and carers

flower lamppost webBrake's National Road Victim Service is a specialist service for people affected by road death and serious injury and the professionals supporting them.

Brake believes that people bereaved and injured in road crashes have the right to the best possible support to aid their recovery and enable them, in time, to lead a full and rewarding life again. But often road crash victims are the forgotten victims, left to deal with their terrible trauma without this help.

Help us achieve our goal of zero road deaths and injuries

Every year hundreds of people are killed and thousands injured on NZ roads. Each crash is a tragedy, each death and injury preventable.
