NEW NAPA Resource – Getting Creative with tech 
NAPA are delighted to launch an exciting competition in partnership with Kare Plus.



We are delighted to announce that Natalie Ravenscroft is joining The NAPA panel of expert volunteers. Natalie will take on the role of NAPA Ambassador

Natalie says:
“Coming from a family of care workers, I realised early in my caring career that I wanted to work with older people and promote meaningful occupation and community engagement.  I started out as an Activity Co-ordinator in Rhyl, North Wales, where I spent four happy years. I then became a Regional Activity Coordinator for a national care provider and gained more knowledge and experience. My current role is Experience Co-ordinator for Belong, a not-for-profit dementia specialist and I have been with the company for three years now. Belong has supported me to bring my ideas to fruition and deliver a number of innovative projects, many of them leading the way in wellbeing for people living in care.

I was overwhelmed at receiving the invitation from NAPA to become an ambassador.  I have always turned to NAPA when seeking advice and guidance in my role and they have regularly been my go-to support. Most recently, I gained the NAPA Level 3 qualification and was incredibly honoured to receive the “Activity Personality of the Year Award” for 2020. I would like to thank NAPA for this opportunity and encourage anyone thinking or starting out as a co-ordinator to remember that opportunities are available and keep doing what you’re doing. You’re never “just” a co-ordinator!”
