Brake is a national charity dedicated to preventing road death and injury and caring for people bereaved or injured in road crashes. Every day, 5 UK police officers have to break the news to 5 UK families, that their loved one has been killed in a road crash. A further 100 families every day learn that their loved one has been seriously injured, with many suffering brain damage, paralysis or limb loss. 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 each November (www.roadsafetyweek.org <http://www.roadsafetyweek.org/> ) and provide free community training on different road safety topics, including  young driver safety,   Our support division is the national provider of support for road crash victims - helping families whose lives have been devastated by a sudden death or serious injury. It offers emotional support and practical information through a helpline and through support literature that is handed out by police following every fatal road crash in the UK. For more information visit our website www.brake.org.uk <http://www.brake.org.uk/> or telephone Lisa Kendall on 01484 683294
