If you belong to an RDA Group and want to join in our activities, we’d love to hear from you. We’re particularly interested in your views of RDA and how we can improve the experience for our riders and drivers.
RDA UK has a National Office based in Warwickshire. We are striving to have a Regional Participant Representative in every one of our 18 regions across the UK. If you are more interested in becoming a Participant Representative, please contact Lottie Dronfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01926 405972 and she will be more than happy to have a chat and point you in the right direction!
At RDA UK, we are really keen on engaging more directly with participants, to receive your feedback and to empower you to have a say in the development of the organisation as a whole as part of this we’re hoping to come and hear what you have to say at a Participant Forum near you. If you would like us to come to your group/county/region, then please do get in contact with Lottie Dronfield.
Participant Forums enable RDA UK to meet with participants and have a conversation about your experiences of RDA. At the forums we focus on the bigger picture of RDA, as a community of participants, and we look to promote all the different parts of RDA which you can get involved in if you would like.
At a forum we get a group of participants together for a chat focusing on communication and also the opportunities available. There is always the chance for you to have your say as we spend some time asking you what you would like from RDA UK and how you feel about your experience of RDA as a whole.
Participants Forums are not the only way to have your say:
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN REPRESENTING YOUR REGION AS A PARTICIPANT?
Want to know more about Participant Representation within your region?
Each region has a participant representative called a “Regional Participant Rep (RPR)”. Being an RPR could be anything from looking after or setting up the regions social media page, to visiting groups on session days. Have a look at North Midlands RDA Facebook page which is looked after by Matthew Dalley, North Midlands Participant Representative.
