INQUEST is an independent, charitable organisation founded in 1981 which provides a free specialist casework service to bereaved families following deaths in all forms of state custody or detention in England and Wales. Its evidence-based casework and the collective experience of bereaved people informs INQUEST’s strategic policy, research and legal work, giving it a unique overview of the emerging issues, trends and systemic failings arising from custody/detention deaths. INQUEST’s overall aim is to secure an investigative process which prevents future deaths in custody or detention through the dissemination of lessons following post-death investigations, and to uphold the rights of bereaved families as victims to be treated with dignity and respect.
