Our team


Moyra Riseborough, BSc (Hons), MPhil, has worked in social research for over 25 years.

Her academic training brings a rigour and robustness to RRCA research, consultancy and training. She has special interests in older age, the changing nature of social care and housing organisations and the third sector.
