We'd love to invite you to our dietetic community!

Welcome to the British Dietetic Association (BDA), the only professional body in the UK for the whole of the dietetic workforce. You’re here because an existing BDA member has recommended membership to you and really thinks you’ll benefit from joining their dietetic community! 

83% of HCPC registered dietitians, 1,000+ dietetic students and hundreds of dietetic support staff/assistant practitioners, nutritionists and international dietitians are already a member of the BDA, their professional body and trade union. Most believe that all of the dietetic workforce should be a member of the BDA, and here’s why:

The BDA membership community represents, promotes and protects the whole of the dietetic workforce, with amost 10,000 members. If you are a dietitian, dietetic support worker, dietetic assistant, or nutritionist working under the supervision of a dietitian, then we invite you to join us today.

How do I join?

  • Discover the value of all the useful benefits and services available to you when you join your professional body and trade union.
  • Find your membership category - join us as a Full Member if you are a registered dietitian, an Associate Member if you are a dietetic support worker/assistant practitioner, or check out our other membership categories.
  • Decide how to pay your tax-deductable membership fee - at just £25 a month for full members, or £9-13 for support staff, BDA membership is excellent value for money. 
  • Join your dietetic community simply online

We look forward to welcoming you to the BDA membership community! The existing member who recommended BDA membership to you has done so as part of our member-get-member campaign. So once you've joined up and received your welcome email and membership pack in the post, please email us stating the full name of the existing member, and we'll send you both a £10 John Lewis voucher!

Existing BDA member?

Thanks for being a BDA advocate and recommending your membership community to your dietetic networks. For each new member you recommend, we’ll give you a £10 voucher as a thank you, and there’s no limit on the number you can claim!
