What we do
The work that we carry out is broadly split into three parts:
Defining standards for the training, practice and continuing professional development of nutrition professionals.
Advancing standards of nutrition competence across the wider workforce.
Communicating with the media and others in public and policy is a vital element of our work, as well as keeping our registrants updated on our progress.
How we operate
The AfN is registered both as a Charity (1136624) and a Company Limited by Guarantee (06488331). We are therefore governed by a Council of Charity Trustees and Directors.
The Council sets the strategy and direction for the organisation and is supported by five committees; Business, Planning & Governance (B,P&G), Finance, Registration, Accreditation and Certification.
The Articles of Association and Governance Rules set out how AfN’s Council and Standing Committees operate.
