As some local measures remain in place, our volunteers are not yet able to deliver a full face-to-face service in all of our usual courts. So, please contact our Helpline to find out if we are able to be at court to support you in person or alternatively we can continue to offer emotional support and guidance on the inquest process over the phone.
Please note our National Helpline is closed on December 25th, 26th and January 1st
The Coroners’ Courts Support Service (CCSS) is an independent voluntary organisation whose trained volunteers offer emotional support and practical help to bereaved families, witnesses and others attending an Inquest at a Coroner’s Court.
Our organisation was set up by the Founder Trustee who attended an Inquest with her cousin whose son, David, had tragically died in a road traffic collision abroad. As David’s body was brought back to this country an Inquest had to be conducted.
Please watch the video of Roey talking about their experience.
Our vision is, and always has been, to set up the Service in all of the Coroners’ Courts within England and Wales to ensure bereaved families, witnesses and others have access to the Service wherever they attend an Inquest.
We would very much appreciate your views on our services and hope you may consider sharing your thoughts, in confidence, by answering a few questions. The information you provide may be used to assist us in raising awareness of what we do, evaluating and improving our services, which in turn, helps us fund from various grant makers. This will enable us to continue with our service.
