Change of name for RICA
Thu, 03 May 2018
RICA, the disability and older consumers’ research charity, has today changed its name to the Research Institute for Disabled - Consumers1 to the Research Institute for Disabled (See Notes Consumers1).
Jon Quinn, Chief Executive of the Research Institute for Disabled (See Notes Consumers2) said: “We’ve made this change as part of our new strategy to help make what we do clearer. This is an exciting time for the charity. Our new strategy commits us to helping more people today, and to securing changes in products and services tomorrow. Our work will focus on three key areas:
Through insight and specialist research, helping businesses to improve products and services for disabled and older consumers
Providing free high-quality consumer information and user reviews
Representing the voice of disabled and older consumers to decision makers
Our new working name and branding will help make that a reality.
In the coming months, we will be launching a new website and publishing our information in different ways.” For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Research Institute for Disabled Consumers is the new trading name of the Research Institute for Consumer Affairs (RICA), a UK charity providing independent research and information. RICA was founded in 1964 by Lord Michael Young through the Consumers’ Association, now Which? and has been independent since 1991.
The Research Institute for Disabled Consumers is the lead expert in user-centred research involving disabled and older consumers. We work with businesses, charities and government to improve products and services for disabled and older people. Our specialist consumer panel was the first of its kind in the UK; it has now developed into a research forum of 700+ disabled and older consumers.
