17 November 2020The Coroners' Court Support Service Telephone Line

The Coroners' Court Support Service has launched a Telephone Support Service that people can be referred to or self refer to.

If family or witnesses are due to attend an inquest in Truro either online or in person then they can be referred either by calling our helpline, email or the online form on our website.

The Helpline will be in contact with them and then a local volunteer who would usually support families and witnesses at court will make contact to support them emotionally and practically.

People may find they have questions or anxieties about attending an inquest and would like to ask questions they don't want to bother the Coroners' court with but our volunteers can answer the questions they may have or signpost them to someone who can answer the questions.

To recieve a call from a Local CCSS Volunteer fill in the referral Form https://coronerscourtssupportservice.org.uk/for-practitioners/ 

Alternatively email helpline@ccss.org.uk or call us on 0300 111 2141 with details of who you would like us to contact.

09 November 2020The Coroners' Courts Support Service - Helpline Campaign 1st - 4th December 2020

Helpline Campaign 1st - 4th December 2020

This is our first campaign to raise awareness and funds for our national helpline which offers practical and emotional support to callers.  CCSS is raising awareness of the importance of support for families and witnesses who are involved in the Inquest process throughout our campaign.

Our Helpline is open Monday – Friday 09:00-19:00 and Saturday 09:00-14:00.  Tel:0300 111 2141. We have a designated trained team of volunteers operating the lines.

The running costs for the helpline are £500 per month which covers the phonelines.  Help us raise the helpline our running costs during the course of our campaign. Each £2.50 you donate will fund a 10 minute telephone call.

We have scheduled throughout the week a number of activities for the public and our volunteers to join, plus we would welcome your help to fundraise on our behalf.  Why not fundraise at home, to help support our campaign or share the helpline details on social media.
