Tools and Information

This page brings together links to useful tools and information to help you with any influencing or advocacy you may want to undertake.

We’re always looking to add to this, so if you have a good case study, have found a useful resource or just want to suggest something you want us to develop, please get in touch! 

BDA Policy Statements

The BDA maintains a selection of evidence-based and referenced policy statements which can be shared with policymakers, the public and the media to provide clear statements of the BDA’s position on a range of important topics. New policy statements are constantly under development and all are subject to regular review. See the full list of BDA policy statements here.

Key Fact Sheets

These A4 leaflets are written by BDA specialist groups and aim to promote and describe to the general public (and your stakeholders) the role of dietitians in their specialities. These leaflets will help you build your messages. We will keep adding to this list in the future. See the full list of Key Fact sheets here.

Consultation Responses

The BDA responds to consultations on a regular basis, and like Policy Statements, these give a clear indication of the Association's view on a particular subject. If you are planning on trying to influence in your local area, it might be worth checking to see if the BDA has already pulled together some of the key arguments. These responses are written in conjunction with specialist groups and subject matter experts and published on the Consultation pages of the website

Briefings 

These documents and links provide background information on important issues, policies and people that you might find useful in preparing or planning your activity.
