Membership of COASA is available to any person working within or in close association with the coroner service or with a proper interest in the Association.
With members from across England and Wales we have a national perspective of the matters relevant to coroners' officers and staff working in the coroner service. We have established effective links to government departments & other organisations. We have successfully lobbied for access to training for coroners' officers and staff and we are working to achieve national standards of working practice.
The introduction of changes to the coroner service and the introduction of the medical examiner service will have a significant impact on your roles JOIN COASA and BE HEARD. In many areas the employer supports membership by funding the annual subscription fee.
