UFFC was formed in early 1997 and is a coalition of families and friends of those that have died in the custody of police and prison officers as well as those who are killed in secure psychiatric hospitals. Together we are building a network for collective action.. Since we were formed, our consistent challenges to the Police Complaints Authority, its successor the Independent Police Complaints Commission, the Crown Prosecution Service and the government has made an impact and changes have been promised - but it is far from enough. Nothing less than the prosecution of the killers of our family members will do.
On a number of occasions we have asked the Government to hold inquiries into these deaths but they have refused. We can never forget those we have lost - and we WILL NOT allow the government to do so. On the last weekend of October every year, we hold a remembrance procession from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street, until the politicians finally act to prevent further deaths and more families suffering the grief we carry every day.
