A major aspect of our research is our direct coordination with patients and caregivers. It helps us focus on result oriented research in areas that really need improvement. Without the support of those who, like us, want to change the world for good, RAFT would cease to exist. The numerous on-going research projects that can improve the level of care and treatment available for patients need the support of everyone – Visit our website from more information www.raft.ac.uk
