Policy and Campaigns
INQUEST conducts campaigns, policy work and research on issues relating to deaths in custody. We aim to raise public awareness, improve the investigation processes following contentious deaths and increase accountability of state officials in order to prevent future avoidable deaths.
Through our casework over more than 30 years, INQUEST has gained a unique overview of how the inquest system operates from the perspective of bereaved families and their advisers. We identify policy issues arising from contentious deaths and their investigation and campaign with and on behalf of bereaved families for changes in practice to prevent future deaths.

‘Your support and assistance in our struggle for truth and justice helped achieve a just verdict, not only for Roger but for the unsung victims, the families and friends of loved ones who have died in custody and for all our endeavours… We view your organisation, your work and dedication with respect and immense admiration. We hope that by working with you, other campaigns and with god’s blessing we can bring about meaningful change.’
– Roger Sylvester Justice Campaign
