TWO Kirklees charities have joined forces to make all roads safer.
Support and Care after Road Death and Injury (Scard) and the Campaign against Drinking and Driving (Cadd) have teamed up to try and cut down road deaths and injuries.
The new group will be known as Scard/Cadd.
Cadd - founded in 1985 by two parents who lost children to drunk drivers - approached Scard, asking it to take over its membership and aims.
Scard's founder, Carole Whittingham, who is now the national secretary of Cadd, said services would not be affected by the new partnership.
She added: "We will be two organisations united in the same objective, to make all roads safer.
"The support service already offered by Scard will be enhanced as we work with members of Cadd who have supported the campaign for many years.
"Cadd members have so much to offer the many other victims we are in contact with.
"This will truly be a win-win situation."
The Scard/Cadd help- line is open between 9am and 9pm, 365 days a year.
The lo-call, cheap rate number is 0845 123 5542.
