INQUEST IS RUNNING A REDUCED SERVICE IN AUGUST
31 July 2013
INQUEST will be running a reduced casework service throughout August 2013 and will also have limited capacity to respond to policy and media enquiries.
Over this period, our casework team will only be able to respond to enquiries relating to deaths in custody (deaths that occur in prison, immigration detention, in psychiatric hospital and in police custody or following police contact). We will try to respond to these enquiries within 7 days.
If you need advice about a death in any other circumstances, please contact us again in September 2013. In the meantime, you might find it helpful to read our Inquest Handbook which can be downloaded from the Help and Advice section. In the Handbook there is a section on specialist sources of advice. Other sources of information and advice can be found through:
Your coroner/coroner’s office
Your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau
‘My congratulations to all involved in this 30 year battle for disclosure [of the Cass report on the death of Blair Peach] … it was this awful state of affairs which led those of us who founded INQUEST to set it up. But it is mind-boggling to think that we were still arguing over this report 30 years later.’
– Terry Munyard, barrister at Garden Court Chambers and founding member of INQUEST
