The Association for Nutrition (AfN) defines and advances standards of evidence-based practice across the field of nutrition and at all levels within the workforce.  We protect and benefit the public by:

·           Championing Registered Nutritionists (RNutr), whose entry onto the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) is an assurance that they meet our rigorous standards of competence and professionalism.

·           Supporting frontline health and social care workers with essential tools enabling individuals to evaluate and enhance their competence to use nutrition safely and competently in their practice.

·           Recognising high quality, relevant nutrition training through our Course Accreditation, CPD Endorsement and Certification schemes.
