The Coroners' Court Support Service
  • As you may be aware, the Coroners' Court Support Service (CCSS) is a charity dedicated to supporting bereaved families, witnesses and others before, during and after the Inquest process.  Myself, my fellow volunteers and the CCSS staff team are always interested to know if there is anything we can do to improve the support we offer to people who need us.

    I would very much appreciate your views on our services and hope you may consider sharing those thoughts, in confidence, by answering a few questions.  This will not require any information which may allow you to be individually identified and any such identifying information you do provide is voluntary.  We respect your trust and protect your privacy and therefore will never use this data for any other purpose than that stated here.  The information you provide may be used to assist us in raising awareness of what we do, evaluating and improving our services, which in turn, helps us fund from various grant makers.  This will enable us to continue with our service.

    By completing this survey, you agree that we will process your data in line with our privacy notice.
