Rita Chadha was born in East London and has worked locally, nationally and internationally for a variety of community and voluntary organisations. Her work has always been focused on equality and cohesion issues as well as on campaigning for a vibrant and dynamic civil society.
In 2006, Rita was bought into the Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London [RAMFEL] as an interim director with the goal of supporting a review of the organisation. Upon completion of her six month contract, she became the organisation’s chief executive and has since then sought to expand RAMFEL’s geographical remit as well as broaden it’s range of services.
In her spare time, Rita is an amateur clock maker and exercise and bikram junkie. She also supports a number of other charities in their events and activities.
