Around 6,000 people take their lives by suicide each year in the UK. The rail sector has been working actively to reduce the number of rail-related suicides. So, what about Britain’s roads? Does anyone know the number of road-related suicides each year or is doing anything to reduce them?

These are the questions the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS) and Samaritans came together to collaboratively explore. They discovered little was known but found approximately 50 of the 6,000 UK suicides per annum occurred using roads, vehicles and road infrastructure and identified recommendations which may reduce the suicide rate.

This FREE National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) webinar will explore the journey, the recommendations, lessons learned and progress since.

Our experts are:
• David Davies, Executive Director, PACTS
• Jacqui Morrissey, Assistant Director, Research & Influencing, Samaritans

Join us on Monday 8 October at 4:30 PM AEDT.
