Brake’s 2019 FLO Awards ceremony was attended by Brake partners, supporters and
volunteers. The awards were presented by Detective Chief Superintendent Richard Wood, of
the Metropolitan Police.
Mary Williams, Chief Executive at Brake, the road safety charity, says:

In the aftermath of a road crash, FLOs provide vital care to families, when they need it most. We were delighted to receive such a high number of exceptional nominations for our second ever FLO Awards, and it has been inspiring to read so many exemplary accounts of guidance and support.

It was an honour to see the winning nominees celebrated at the ceremony at the Houses of
Parliament, and on behalf of Brake, I would like to congratulate all of this year’s entrants and nominees for their outstanding contributions to bereaved families.
