Our Team

Our staff include the Management Team who work with the Trustees to provide the direction for the charity, our Scientists who conduct a stream of five research programmes and our Fundraising team, who raise vital funds so we can continue our science and expand our research programmes.

They all bring a wealth of experience to RAFT, passionate about making a difference to the lives of patients who have suffered major physical trauma.
