2021 RITA User Group Meeting was a huge success

14th Dec 2021

We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who was able to attend the UGM and awards last Thursday (9th December) and thank you for the amazing feedback. We had over 200 people booked to attend in the end, which is absolutely fantastic given the significant challenges being faced at the moment and really is testament to the value people see in RITA and the amazing outcomes being achieved.

We would especially like to pass on our gratitude to the following speakers for investing their time and delivering some inspirational case studies: 

  • Ian Sherriff - Academic Partnership Lead for Dementia University of Plymouth
  • Grahame Hardy Specialist Nurse for Dementia & Sharon Wells Therapy Assistant from Kent Community Health NHS FT
  • Emma Anderson Head of Therapies/Deputy COO from Sunderland Council/Sunderland Care & Support
  • Becky Wilkinson Deputy Director - Adult Services from City of Wolverhampton Council
