What Our Volunteers Do

Our volunteers support bereaved families and witnesses who may be experiencing a wide range of emotions and feelings when they attend the Coroner’s Court. Volunteers undertake Pre-Inquest familiarisation of the Coroner’s Court and explain the processes and procedures to families and witnesses. They accompany families and witnesses into court and once the Inquest has concluded will allow them time for recovery in a quiet place, if available, and ensure they have received all the necessary information from the Coroner’s Officer
Our volunteers listen to and empathise with concerns and anxieties of the families and witnesses attending an Inquest.
