If you are looking for help and advice 

Please get in touch with the INQUEST casework team using one of the below options. For information about our casework service and remit, visit our help and advice page.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, investigations and inquests are currently subject to disruption and delay. Families who have concerns or questions about what this means for them should speak to their lawyer or caseworker. 


Regrettably the casework advice service is closed to new enquiries from Monday 26 July for an initial period of 4 weeks. This is due to the high demands on the service and limited caseworker capacity.  

Please refer to our Factsheets and Handbook which may answer your questions. The handbook section on other sources of support may also be helpful.  We can direct you to members of our specialist INQUEST Lawyers Group members, particularly if you have an upcoming hearing date or urgent deadline.

If you have an existing case with INQUEST, please contact your caseworker on 020 7263 1111.

1. Submit the casework contact form

2. Call us: 020 7263 1111

  • option 1 for new enquiries – open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday

  • option 2 if you have a caseworker

We aim to respond to each enquiry as soon as possible. Due to the high number of enquiries, there may be a short delay in responding.

In the meantime, you may find answers to some of your questions on the Useful Resources page.



If you are a journalist or researcher 

We welcome enquiries from print and broadcast journalists, researchers and producers. We would ask that you do as much research as possible on our website before contacting us with a specific query or interview request

For relevant information for journalists and researchers, see our media enquiries page.

To contact our communications team:

1. Submit the media enquiry form

2. Email [email protected]

3. Call the media line on 020 7263 1111 (option 3)

and leave a message with your name and contact information.

As a small team, we are unable to respond to all requests, and detailed information requests may take one to two weeks to gather. If you are contacting us to reach families please bear in mind that we will need time to approach and support them to engage meaningfully with media work.
