In 2023 the 4WardEverUK website will be undergoing a significant downsize in relation to its content and frequency of output, whilst retaining crucial archived resources. We will also be switching to a new hosting platform.
The existing website will continue functioning as normal, however we may not publish as much new content to the resources, information and case profile sections. We’ll continue publishing news of interest but from January 2023 much of this may be via our social media networks.
The NMPMFF (developed in 2015) is the first permanent national resource of its kind specifically for those that are affected by deaths in custody and makes small grants available for families and their campaign groups across the United Kingdom to provide practical domestic assistance, to further the work of their own campaigns or to assist them in engaging in a range of other local, regional or national campaigns, events and initiatives.
In September 2022 the Independent Office for Police Misconduct (IOPC) released details of their custody deaths statistics for England 2021-2022.
The following content is transcribed from the IOPC website.
Deaths during or following police contact
Police forces have a statutory duty to refer all incidents involving a death or serious injury to us. Each year, we publish data showing how many people have died after contact with the police.
