An Update on Plans to Relaunch our South Wales Branch

Back in November we got in touch to let you know of our plans to relaunch our branch in South Wales. We are hopeful that we will be able to hold at least one branch event this year, but we really need your support to make that happen.

We are currently recruiting for a Chair and a Treasurer to form a committee. This will enable us to work together to plan the future direction of the branch, for the benefit of our members in South Wales. Whether you are new to volunteering with us, or have experience of previous volunteering roles, we would love to hear from you.

As we continue to develop our volunteer programme, now is a great time to get involved. We will support you every step of the way to ensure that you get the best experience possible. This will allow you to make a positive impact on members and the dietetic profession in South Wales.

Introducing our new Secretary

A big thank you to Niamh will be joining the committee as Secretary.

I'm Niamh. I am newly qualified dietitian, and graduated from Plymouth University in September. Starting my career out in the Aneurin Bevan health board. As I qualified in England and have moved back to Wales, I felt that I needed some dietetic connection to the local area. That's when an email came through about volunteering on the new committee for the BDA’s South Wales Branch being newly launched.

As a student in Plymouth, I founded and was a committee member of the food and nutrition group, was a student rep and student ambassador. I love being a member of a community and helping create a community.

The South Wales Branch is still looking for volunteers for the new starting committee. If you are passionate about building a dietetic community here in South Wales, please reach out for more details.

We are hoping to create an open space for those newly qualified, returning to work, changing specialities or remaining in their department to feel equality support.

Get Involved

If you would like to join Niamh on this rewarding journey, please take a look at our volunteering pages where you can apply directly for the role of Chair or Treasurer.

If you would be interested in volunteering in other roles and would like to discuss further, please email and we can arrange a call. We would love to hear from you!
