A charity which provides free support to people affected by road deaths in the east of England has launched a ‘hard-hitting’ film to highlight its work.
Founded in 1995, the Road Victims Trust (RVT) provides emotional and practical support to those affected by fatal road collisions in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
The RVT works in partnership with police forces and road safety partnerships across the three counties. Its team of volunteers and coordinating staff delivers face-to face-counselling and support for as long as is needed.
The new film features Kate Goldsmith, Tanya Huckle and Henry Wellbelove, all ambassadors with the RVT, who speak about the the loss of their loved ones.
It also includes tributes from police family liaison officers and counsellors who work alongside the RVT.
Mark Turner, chief executive of the RVT, said: “This is an incredibly moving and powerful production involving remarkable people.
“The effects of a road death are absolutely devastating yet all the people reliving their experiences are doing so knowing it will enable the Trust to support other people in similar circumstances.
“I urge everyone to watch the film and learn about our work.”
