As the only representative body for the UK dietetic workforce, one of the key roles of the BDA is to influence on issues important to our members, their patients, and the public. Dietitians are public health advocates and we want to support them to perform this role. Our 2018-2021 Strategic Plan includes the priorities to "Campaign with others to influence decision makers and stakeholders" and "Promote our services, our members and our profession".
Sometimes this will involve focusing on a specific topic or take the form of an ongoing campaign, and you will find details of those here, as well as details of past campaigns. You can access information on what we want to achieve, an explanation of how you can take part and further supporting documentation. These campaigns are agreed by our boards, specialist groups or our governing Board of Directors in conjunction with the BDA head office team.
Take part in a campaign
All of the BDA's campaigns will benefit from support from our members, partners, and stakeholders. If you want to get involved or have questions or comments about any of our campaigns, there will be details of what you can do to help on each campaign page, which you can access on the left hand side of the page. You can also get in touch with our Public Affairs Officer, Tom Embury.
