RARA during COVID-19

RARA was born out of the 2008 recession so times of crisis only reaffirm our core principles of affordability and co-operation.


By introducing a booking system and limiting the numbers allowed in the space at any one time, members are able to continue to make use of our faciliites while ensuring social distancing is comfortably maintained.


We have reduced our membership fee's and given holidays to members who have seen a significant loss of income helping many to refocus their time on mutual aid, using our kit to produce PPE and planning RARA's longer term response.
