Advice & Assistance

Work-Related Death Advice Service

The CCA is the only national non-governmental organisation in Britain that provides free, independent and confidential advice and assistance to families bereaved from a work-related death.

We have provided advice and assistance to hundreds of families, often over a number of years, from the time of the death to the end of the investigation and prosecution process

We give advice on all kinds of deaths to both workers and to members of the public who have died where the circumstances raise questions about the working practices of an organisation.

It could be a death on a construction site, in a hospital, in a road-traffic incident or in a care home. It can take place anywhere in the UK - England, Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland

Contact us on 0207 490 4494 and ask to speak to a case-worker. Or you can e-mail us, by clicking here

We provide advice on all investigation and prosecution issues arising out of the death.

We help families deal with the police, the health and safety executive, local authorities, maritime and coastguard agency, and the Crown Prosecution Service/Procurator Fiscal Service and Coroners Courts/Fatal Accident Inquiries

We find out information for the family, write letters to the different state bodies and attend meetings along with the families.

We will help families understand the process and help assess whether an adequate investigation has been carried out and whether the evidence has been scrutinised properly.
