Coroners Court Awareness Training

The ethos of the Coroner’s Court process is to put the family at the heart of the process, despite this the Coroner Court process can feel very unfair and difficult at times for family members. With limited availability of funding for legal representation can result in what may feel like an inequality of arms when faced with other parties such as the NHS trusts, prison authorities, or the police being fully legally represented and may appear as if they are taking the position of defending themselves.

Without effective legal representation, family members can feel lost in the process and feel like mere observers, when they wish to take an active role. They may not know they have the right to ask questions or even can challenge the evidence, so that they can understand out how and why their family member died.

By not having the assistance they require, family members often turn to the same social care or health care professionals who were supporting their family members prior to their death for support.  This can be a challenge at times for the social care professionals, who may not fully be familiar with the process themselves. Combining this with having to support family members struggling with grief can add to the challenge.
