Campaign for legislation to provide more support to families seeking justice in the aftermath of public tragedies

15 January 2022

Brentford FC support the growing campaign across the country to create the Hillsborough Law which aims to ensure truth and justice during future investigations into major incidents.

It also aims to provide more support to bereaved families in the aftermath of public tragedies.

The campaign has been supported by many politicians; clubs including Liverpool, Everton and Brighton and Hove Albion; and organisations such as Grenfell United.

What is the Hillsborough Law?

It is set of reforms based on four key pillars. First, a Charter for families bereaved through public tragedy legally binding on all public bodies.

Second, a duty of candour on public servants during all forms of public inquiry and criminal investigation.

Third, proper participation of bereaved families at inquests, through publicly funded legal representation and an end to near limitless legal spending by public bodies.

And Fourth, a public advocate to act for families of the deceased after major incidents.
