RoSPA welcomes new addition to lifesaving road safety team


RoSPA has welcomed a new member to its road safety team who will help deliver the safety charity’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries.

Rebecca Needham joined the charity in July as research and evaluation officer.

She recently graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BA Honours degree in sociology and will use her skills to take forward the charity’s work, particularly in supporting road safety practitioners across the country.

Her main focus will be to provide advice on the charity’s Road Safety Evaluation website, which helps those involved in delivering road safety education training and publicity.

Rebecca said:  “I have a long-standing interest in road safety and I am delighted to be joining the UK’s leading safety charity. I am looking forward to getting stuck into my new role and am excited about the challenges that lie ahead.

“Working for RoSPA provides a great opportunity for me to use the skills developed during my university degree to help the road safety profession by providing advice on how to use its Road Safety Evaluation website.  Evaluating the effectiveness of road safety intervention is really important so we know what is working and where best to direct resources. “

Rebecca will work alongside head of road safety Kevin Clinton and road safety manager Nick Lloyd in her role.
