We understand it may be a difficult time after a road traffic related accident. That is why we are committed to supporting those who have been affected by road traffic related trauma.

Because road trauma is a specialist area, we provide support to witnesses, survivors and those that have lost a loved one to a road traffic related accident with free trauma counselling. Our services are free and our aim is to get those affected back to their pre-accident state so they can start to enjoy life again.

Our free counselling services are possible through our partnership with the Canterbury Charity Hospital Charitable Trust who are able to support those affected within the Canterbury Region.

If you, a loved one or a patient requires trauma counselling and would like further information, please contact us – we are here to help. Particularly if they have been declined counselling services through the Accident Compensation Corporation.

To make a confidential, direct self-referal, please contact the Trust directly.


As of late March the Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust has now suspended all of its services and will remain closed until further notice to patients for the duration of the Covid-19 health emergency.

The premises may however be utilised by the District Health Board  during this time using District Health Board staff and supported by Charity hospital staff.

Once the emergency is over,, we hope to be operational again soon.

Due to Covid-19 the Road Traffic Accident Trauma Charitable Trust would like to advise that it is still able to provide its free counselling services by telephone by one of our highly experienced counsellors.
