As well as paid staff the Trust has a growing team of dedicated Counselling Volunteers.  Without these volunteers we could not provide the full service over such a wide area. All our Counselling Volunteers  have a counselling background and have successfully completed the Trust’s training in bereavement, trauma and the investigative and legal processes associated with serious road collisions so they can provide the best possible support for as long as it is useful.  It is very challenging work and without the Counselling Volunteers we would not be able to support the numbers of people we do.

In September 2013 the Road Victims Trust was self-assessed as working at Level 1 of the PQASSO quality assurance system specifically designed for use by voluntary and community organisations.
