The Trustees currently meet twice a year to consider grant applications, however the Trustees are moving to considering applications on a quarterly basis. This is likely to mean Trustees will meet in February, May, August and November in 2016. Please contact the BDA office for details of deadlines and when to submit your application (usually 6 weeks prior to any meeting).

There are normally at least 6 Trustees, independent of the BDA, who are appointed because of their work within the BDA, their research profile in human nutrition and dietetics, or because they bring independence and impartiality to the review process and the running of the Trust Fund.

The current Trustees are:

  • Fiona McCullough (Honorary Chairman of the BDA).
  • Pauline Mulholland MBE (Honorary Treasurer of the BDA).
  • Dr Sue Acreman.
  • Michele Mackintosh.
  • Prof Martin Wiseman.
  • Graham Parker.
