The Road Victims Trust honoured with Royal Award

18 October 2016

A registered charity that supports the families and friends of those bereaved by fatal road collisions has been awarded the prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award (PMIRSA) for the quality of post-crash care given to victims.

The Road Victims Trust (RVT), who were founded in 1995, provide free emotional and practical support to persons affected by fatal road collisions in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. Unique working partnerships with the Police Forces and Road Safety Partnerships across the 3 counties enable the RVT to offer support to those in need. A highly skilled and bespoke team of Volunteers and Coordinating staff delivers face to face counselling and support for as long as is needed. Last year the RVT supported in excess of 500 people who were affected by the 84 deaths on the roads of the 3 counties.

The award winners will be introduced to HRH Prince Michael of Kent at the award ceremony at The Savoy Hotel, London on Tuesday 13th Dec 2016.

Speaking about the award, Chair of Trustees of RVT, Lyn Hesse said, “We are all very proud and honoured to win an award of such international standing. This is a tribute to all of the RVT Staff, Volunteers and Partners who work tirelessly to provide the service. This type of support is, quite simply, not available elsewhere. We know that what we do provides hope to re-build the lives of so many devastated people”.
