Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust
Rebuilding lives after Trauma
Help us keep developing Pioneering treatments to restore patients’ quality of life that have suffered physical trauma.
RAFT is a medical research charity founded in 1988 by four plastic surgeons, Roy Sanders, Brian Morgan, Douglas Harrison and Paul Smith who were dismayed at how long it took for scientific innovations to filter through to patients. Working with burns patients, they believed there was so much more that could be done and so, decided to invest their own money to change the situation.
RAFT is a registered charity and receives no government funding. Our Pioneering research relies on the generous financial support of a wide range of individuals, trusts and companies.

RAFT’s research is primarily focused on developing novel treatments which help the body restore tissue (such as skin, bone and breast) which has been affected by physical trauma, cancer or a birth defect.
