Tailored yet scalable
Our programmes, training and resources are designed to be tailored to the communities where they are delivered.
Developed by experts
They are developed by our teams of dieticians, nutritionists, physical activity experts and behaviour change specialists using detailed research and evidence.
Delivered by local people and organisations
We train, equip and support teams employed by local organisations to deliver our world-class programmes.
Research and evidence-based
We have a 20-year research partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust and University College London Institute of Child Health.
We also have research partnerships with the University of Texas School of Public Health (USA), Baylor College of Medicine (USA), University of Nebraska Medical Center (USA), Simon Fraser University (Canada) and Deakin University (Australia).
