The R&RA is a charitable company limited by guarantee, with an elected Board of Trustees who are responsible for running and directing its activities.
The main work of providing help and support to individuals and families on care issues (in particular the much praised helpline, which offers top quality expert advice, free and unbiased, to any caller on a daily basis) depends on our full-time care advisers who each have many years of experience in the field.
The guidance and training aids for which the R&RA is so well known reflect this experience and that of our Trustees and volunteers. The fund of knowledge and expertise we are able to draw on is reflected in our campaigns and initiatives, so that when we speak out on an issue, we are listened to.
