Welcome to the R&RA

The Relatives & Residents Association is the national charity for older people in or needing care and the relatives and friends who help them cope.

We are here to support and inform residents, families and friends to find out all they need to know about care and to help them if things go wrong.

We speak out on behalf of a sector who cannot always speak out for themselves. Our knowledge and experience of the care system means that when we do, our voice is listened to.
