Structure & Ownership

RARA is a cooperative – we are owned and run entirely by our members. This means all profit made by us goes back into improving our facilities and buying new kit. Nobody is extracting dividends or large salaries, we have been almost entirely volunteer run until very recently.

We are completely autonomous and free from any outside funding. This means no grants from government, the local authority or arts bodies, we are funded entirely from our membership fees and from the work we do.

RARA is a member of Co-operatives UK.
