What we do

Food Active’s core aim is to address the social, environmental, economic and legislative factors which influence people’s lifestyle choices and behaviours, with a specific focus on healthy weight.
Explore our four key strands of work below.

We work to influence policy pertaining to healthy weight at both a local and national level.

We deliver interventions and campaigns to promote healthier weight, including balanced diet and physically active lifestyles, with a focus on populations who suffer the greatest level of health inequalities.

We undertake research and develop strategic partnerships to lobby and advocate on issues pertaining to unhealthy weight and the impact of both the food and built environment.

We develop a range of resources and deliver training to support core activities of the Food Active programme.
