What were your involvements before NDA?

Savita Katbamna

Before I joined NDA, I was a research fellow in the Dept of Health Science, University of Leicester where I carried out research on a variety of topics concerning older people and BME groups. I am a member of the BME Older People’s Forum at Age UK.


Why did you join the OPRG?

I was invited to join the OPRG by Age UK to represent the views of BME Older People’s Forum.

What has been the most rewarding part of being a member of the OPRG?

The most rewarding part of being a relatively new member of the OPRG is to meet other members of the OPRG and to hear about their experiences of working with NDA research projects and the kind of contributions they have made to the projects.

What would you like to see the NDA achieve?

In my opinion, one of the most important achievements of the NDA programme would be to ensure that projects are supported beyond the implementation stage to provide opportunity to assess their impact on the lives older people.
