This page aims to highlight examples of some of the influencing work being undertaken by the BDA and its members and hopefully inspire you to have a go yourself. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and you can find more examples on the individual campaign pages

Collaborating and Campaigning

The BDA frequently takes public stands on important issues, either alone or alongside partners.  

You can see more of our day-to-day media engagement in issues of Dietetics Today.

Political engagement

Engaging with politicians at Westminster, the devolved governments or at a local level: 

The BDA is a member of the All Party Food and Health Forum and APPG on Fit and Healthy Childhood and tries to attend meetings and speak at as many as possible. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings on behalf of the BDA, get in touch.

If you think there's an All Party or Cross Party Group that the BDA should be involved in, let us know. There are dozens of these groups and many will have relevance to diet and nutrition.
