Charity governance/Trustees

Meet the team that makes it all happen

RDA is a registered charity operating in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We are governed by our experienced Board of Trustees, a team of talented volunteers with a wide range of skills, who give their time to drive the strategic direction of RDA.

Led by our Chairman, the Trustees are responsible for ensuring that we meet our charitable aims and objectives as set out in our ‘Memorandum and Articles of Association’.
