The BDA is the only body in the UK representing the whole of the dietetic workforce. We are a trade union and professional body representing the professional, educational, public and workplace interests of our members.
Founded in 1936, we are one of the oldest and most experienced dietetic organisations in the world. Membership is open to anyone working in dietetics, in nutrition, or who has an interest in diet or food, throughout the world. We represent the whole of the dietetic workforce - practitioners, researchers, educators, support workers and students.
As both a professional body and trade union, we’ve worked hard to provide our members with tangible bespoke benefits and services (worth over £1,600) to cater for their professional needs. These benefits and services cover a wide range of areas including representative and legal, education and professional development, resources, promotion, events and saving our members' money.
