INQUEST is an independent charity and receives no government funding. As such we rely on grants and the generosity of INQUEST friends and supporters.
Making a donation, no matter how big or small, will help us to maintain our work advising and supporting over 1,500 bereaved family members and friends per year. Each year our small staff team responds to 5,000 queries from policy makers, the media, parliamentarians and the general public, and on average have an open caseload of 350 cases at any time.
INQUEST's future is totally dependent upon individual donations and grants and that is why your help is crucial in maintaining our unique service.

‘I was already working with INQUEST, which is the organisation who monitor deaths in custody, and at one AGM I told the audience that what happened to these people [killed in police custody like Chistopher Alder, Roger Sylvester and many others] could happen to any of us. And then a couple of years later, I was standing in front of them again but now it had happened to my cousin. So my family and me were now “users” of Inquest. It shows you that none of us are immune – here am I, Benjamin Zephaniah, patron of INQUEST and client of INQUEST at the same time.’
