RA: Outcry is a band formed in late 2000 by Procol Harum fans Nigel Ratcliffe and Richard Amey especially to raise awareness about homelessness and to support the Worthing Churches Homeless Projects charity by playing serious, quality songs that perform this function, along with other lighter, popular material chosen to encourage audiences to look out for one another and generate a more compassionate society.

The band thereby entertain, motivate people to become new charity volunteers, and raise money along the way, as well as performing at specifically fund-raising events. Learn To Fly often closes the set and its function is a call to action. Outcry also incorporate anti-war songs Holding On (Procol Harum) and Army Dreamers (Kate Bush).
