Transforming lives across the UK
what it means for you


With 18,000 dedicated volunteers and volunteer coaches at RDA groups around the UK, our strategy recognises the skill and experience of this network – and also the need to bring new people into the organisation.

We will:

  • Develop and deliver a specific plan to recruit and retain volunteers across the organisation
  • Ensure that our coaching pathway supports the recruitment and retention of coaches
  • Create Regional Hubs to provide more direct local support to help recruit and train volunteers
  • Gather regular impact and experience feedback from volunteers
  • Deliver our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion plan
  • Increase awareness of our work to encourage new volunteers

The RDA training has been really valuable and gelled with my ways of thinking. Just knowing you’ve got the support of RDA, that you can call someone up for advice, is brilliant.
