Company Background Rick Hutchinson and Keith Stead co-developed the Rickter Scale® in 1993 through working with small regional organisations in the field of social inclusion. Demand for their expertise and unique product grew to the point where they formed the partnership Choiceworks and eventually in 2001 they established The Rickter Company Ltd. The Rickter Team is currently made up of 5 Core staff based at various locations throughout the UK along with a growing number of Associates, all of whom are passionate about promoting the activities and ethos of the Rickter Company Ltd. Our mission is to “awaken individuals to choice”
Testimonials “The use of the Rickter Scale® and its simple action plan structure has facilitated the gathering of ‘softer’ developmental outcomes for our organisation which has consistently added value to the community when reporting to funders and strategy groups.” Alan Blair, Next Steps Scotland “We initially looked at Rickter training to give us a tool to measure soft outcomes - it has become much more than that. It is a way to identify areas that need to be focused on, and can easily be transferred onto a care plan.” Julie Quantrill, Bridgegate Drugs Services
