In February 1999, West Australian couple Alan and Glenda Maloney found themselves on a journey no one would wish to take. Their 17-year-old daughter Skye and her friend died suddenly in a road crash.

Their journey made them realise the lack of support that was available to them while trying to cope with the trauma of their sudden loss and negotiating all the post-crash procedures involved and led to them lobbying and advocating from 2008 for a dedicated service to provide support to all of those impacted by road trauma in WA.

They were assisted by a number of agencies and individuals associated with road safety, trauma, mental health, emergency services and others who worked tirelessly over many years to ensure support would be available to all of those affected by road trauma in WA.

Supported by the Road Trauma Trust Account through the Road Safety Council, Office of Road Safety and Department of Health WA, the vision of many became a reality: Road Trauma Support WA launched Sunday 17 November 2013, on the annual World Remembrance Day for Road Traffic Victims with Dr Sudhakar Rao as Patron.
