Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Resources

Set out below are links and information on EDI resources developed by AHP and professional bodies. These are available for use by any professional body or to be shared more widely. Please note these pages cover more than AHPF member organisations.  These pages are regularly updated.

The BDA has had an Equalities strategy since 2016 which contains a public statement of commitment;  Equalities | British Dietetic Association (BDA)

The Revised 2020 Curriculum Framework for the pre-registration education and training of dietitians requires students to demonstrate the ability to understand and act in accordance with current legislation applicable to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
