Relatives & Residents Association

We support, inform and speak on behalf of older people in care


Please Donate

You can make a real difference and help our work by donating to the R&RA:

• Make an online donation

• Make a direct payment or set up a standing order via your bank, or through Charities Aid if you have a CAF account.

• Become a member

• By leaving the R&RA a legacy in your will.

Whichever method you use, thank you! As a small charity without any endowments or commercial backing, our ability to carry on this much needed work depends on the continuing generosity of our donors.

The easiest and quickest way to donate is via an online donation. We can receive card payments via the “PayPal” system. All the main credit and debit cards can be used and there is no need to have a PayPal account. Click on the button below to open the secure link.


If you use internet banking it is now easy to make a direct payment using the “bill payment” facility on your bank’s secure website. Please call or email us for the Association’s bank account number, sort code and payment reference details you need to enter (this needs to be done accurately for the payment to reach us so please be careful!)



You can make individual or regular donations to us through the Charities Aid Foundation by clicking here.


You can support our vital work by becoming a member of R&RA. Membership is a great way to help us to do more to ensure that the voice of older people using care services is heard. Find out more here.


A gift by will is a wonderful way to benefit the R&RA. We are enormously grateful for the gifts we receive in this way which make a huge difference to what we are able to do for others facing the difficulties of old age. Gifts to a charity are normally exempt from inheritance tax and many people find this a practical and attractive way to benefit a cause they may have supported or been helped by in their lifetime.

Please get in touch with us if you would like any help with a suitable wording or to discuss any areas of our work you would particularly like to support.
