our values


We are cohesive in how we approach problems and are concerted and co-ordinated in our efforts


As a small charity with big aims, we endeavour to be adaptable.  We are resilient, ‘fleet of foot’, able to overcome challenges and open to persuasion, always willing to consider new ideas.


We strive to be efficient, skilful and proficient and to represent RAFT to the best of our ability at all times.

Entrepreneurial approach and commercial edge

As a charity we look to the corporate sector to model our organisation.  We have a commercial awareness so that our research can be brought to patients, helping to fund the charity in the future.


At RAFT we have a long history of innovation and have changed healthcare significantly.  We aim to be cutting-edge in what we do.  Early adoption of new ideas and technology is important and we work hard not to be fearful of new ideas or change.
