The R&RA is keen to encourage corporate memberships among care providers and all others concerned for the care of older people. Joining the R&RA is a practical way for both large and small providers to show their commitment to the best standards and a continual quest for improvement in this vital sector – uniquely demanding as it is for commercial and non-profit providers alike.
Our corporate members are able to play a full part in our events and meetings: a tangible benefit for them we firmly believe, and one shared by other members and residents, as all ideas and practice gain from being talked through and developed in light of real-life experiences from more than one perspective.
And of course the R&RA membership certificate on display in a home, with our leaflets and materials giving practical advice for relatives on care issues, what to expect and how to go about raising any concerns, is highly effective as a direct and reassuring way of showing a real commitment to good and open practice.
(We should just say for clarity that all R&RA corporate memberships are subject to our full policy on arrangements with outside bodies. This means the interests of residents will always be our sole concern – nor, we are sure, would any of our corporate members wish or expect otherwise – and only individual members are entitled to vote at meetings.)
Fees: Corporate membership of the R&RA costs £100 annually for each home or set of premises registered for membership.
Corporate subscriptions can conveniently be paid direct into our bank account – details as set out below. Please quote the home’s name or membership number as the payment reference, or if making a combined payment for several homes at once, please confirm by email with a list for our records.
