The INQUEST Skills and Support Toolkit is a resource for families and friends dealing with the aftermath of a death in custody and detention.
The skills toolkit has been directed by the thoughts and experiences of INQUEST’s family reference group. The group includes a number of families whose relative has died in police custody or following police contact, prison custody, an immigration removal centre and a psychiatric setting.
What is the Skills and Support Toolkit?
The online toolkit written by INQUEST, is an interactive resource that aims to build a range of skills, from organising information relating to the inquest, speaking in public, to handling media attention.
Families have helped to create the skills toolkit, giving bereaved individuals the much needed support and ability to communicate their concerns and calls for change.
"The Skills and Support Toolkit can provide you with practical advice needed to continue and maintain your day to day life at a time when even the simplest of tasks can seem insurmountable, or help you develop the skills needed to mount a campaign." - Mother of a child who died in prison.
