The Relatives & Residents Association champions the rights of older people needing care in England. We provide information, advice and support to empower older people and their families/friends, and use their unique perspective to raise awareness and to influence policy and practice.
The change we want to see:
For older people needing care, and those who support them, to be well informed about their rights and entitlements and empowered to speak up about poor quality care
For older people to receive high quality care which respects their rights
For older people to receive the care they need from a system which is appropriately funded, staffed and valued
For more older people and their families/carers to be supported by a financially sustainable, efficient Relatives & Residents Association
