The British Dietetic Association believes in the right of all to enjoy healthy, nutritious and sustainable food and lifestyles. We achieve this by developing and supporting activities that help children to have a healthy start to life and enable adults of all ages to maximise their health throughout life.
With more than 6500 members, the British Dietetic Association is the UK’s largest organisation of food and nutrition professionals. A relationship with the association provides your organisation with access to key expertise and influencers, plus channels for communication.
The BDA is committed to working in partnership with its members, other professional bodies, government, consumer groups, health charities, food interest groups, the specialist food industry, as well as mainstream food and drink manufacturers and retailers.
By taking a partnership approach, we can work with organisations who share our core values to create better messages that people can understand and act upon to improve their health and that of their families.
Before entering into any partnership or project the BDA’s core principles must be considered and will always be paramount.
The principles are:
- The corporate integrity of the BDA and the BDA members’ professional reputation will always be the first consideration.
- Scientific validity, ethical soundness and professional appropriateness will always be the criteria against which any potential collaboration will be judged.
- The wider-picture will also always be considered when assessing collaborations e.g. the social and socio-political context.
If you want to explore a partnership or collaboration with the BDA but aren’t sure who you need to speak to, please contact the BDA Communications Team on 0121 200 8080.
