Brake - The Road Safety Charity

We promote road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use, and effective road safety policies through campaigns, community education, information and advice for organisations operating fleets of vehicles and road safety professionals, and the UK’s flagship road safety event, Road Safety Week.

What we do

We provide essential support to people across the UK devastated by road death and serious injury to help them in their darkest hours. We run an accredited, expert helpline and provide support literature to help bereaved and seriously injured road crash victims cope with their grief, deal with bewildering practical matters and access the help they need.

Our helpline supports more than 500 families a year and support packs are handed to families by police following every UK road death. We coordinate the national Road Safety Week every November, involving around 10,000 schools, employers and road safety professionals raising awareness about road safety in communities across the UK.

We campaign for essential road safety policies and wider awareness. We call on drivers to slow down to protect children and organise a Beep Beep Day initiative for pre-schoolers. We run a membership scheme, produce resources, run webinars and conferences.

We encourage people to make our Brake Pledge and use our road safety advice to help everyone use roads safely and sustainably, we also make sure our voice is heard in the media.

What is a Beep Beep! Day?

A day to engage early years in road safety basics. Beep Beep! Days, sponsored by Churchill, are a great opportunity for early year’s educators to introduce children to road safety basics, with fun activities and resources provided by Brake, the road safety charity.

Every year thousands of children aged 2 to 7 year olds take part to help save little lives.

This year, we have a Kids Walk on Wednesday 26 June and 3 Beep Beep! days on:

  • Wednesday 20 March 2019
  • Wednesday 17 July 2019
  • Wednesday 20 November 2019

For further information please view our Beep Beep days flyer 2019 under 'downloads' for details on how to register.
