Do you wish to develop your organisation to ensure a healthy future?


Robbie BellRobbie Bell, RYA Regional Development Officer (RDO) for the East has put together this page to help you understand how the RYA can help your organisation.


What does an RDO do? He is responsible for helping Clubs and Training Centres to sustain and develop participation, implementing and progressing RYA programmes and initiatives including OnBoard and Adult Participation as well as delivering accessible training and development opportunities for Instructors and coaches.

Support from the RDO is available in the form of development planning, funding, market segmentation and access to the RDO's team of Regional Club Coaches and OnBoard Development Officers who specialise in particular subject areas to give you the best support available and to help your organisation plan for a sustainable future.


Given that each organisation is different the team can tailor its support to ensure you are getting the help and advice you need. Individual club meetings or multi-club workshops can be arranged to discuss general club development or particular initiatives.
