The Coroners' Courts Support Service

Welcome to The Coroners’ Courts Support Service

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 the 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.

Please contact us on 0300 111 2141 or info@ccsupport.org.uk to find out more or to receive more information about our organisation or attending a Coroner’s Court.

Our Mission

  • To support practically and emotionally the family and other witnesses attending the Coroners’ Courts.
  • To liaise with other parties appearing before the court to ensure their understanding of its role and the procedures, in order to facilitate its smooth and effective administration.
  • To signpost families and witnesses to other agencies if so requested, for ongoing help with coming to terms with their bereavement.
