Young Riders Matter - NYRF

After a successful first National Young Riders Day on 27th June 23, the NYRF firmly set out why our young riders matter and how a 'levelling up' of activity, budget and mindset needs to take place compared to that currently concentrated on young drivers.

Heidi Duffy MBE, Facilitator, National Young Rider Forum

Heidi Duffy MBE has enjoyed a long and varied career in road safety, starting from her service as a police officer, then road safety assistant with both Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City local road safety teams, followed by 16 years as road casualty reduction manager for Nottinghamshire Police, until retiring in 2017.

However, retirement was found to be lack lustred for Heidi who now enjoys three posts: facilitator for the Shiny Side Up Partnership and the National Young Rider Forum with Via East Midlands, and traffic management officer for Nottinghamshire Police.

Heidi was awarded an MBE for Services to Road Safety in 2015.
