RAFT receives no Government funding and relies on the generosity of individuals, grant-making trusts and companies to fund its research. This means we can be totally independent and deliver the research that patients need within a relatively short time frame. The three main programmes currently seeking funds are:
- Improving breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy
- Developing new 3D facial reconstruction techniques for children and adults
- Bone regeneration- helping the body to re-grow bone naturally
- Developing a more effective treatment for keloid scarring
More than 70p out of every £1 donated to RAFT goes directly towards research to help people regain their quality of life after trauma, accident, illness or disease.
