Obesity Alliance - Next Steps

Obesity Alliance logo

After our initial meeting in April, which supported the creation of an alliance to tackle obesity in Scotland, we have made steady progress. 

A small ‘planning group’ consisting of representatives from across the spectrum of potential alliance members e.g. third sector, public sector and academia will now form and shape the Alliance.

The initial role of this group is to draft proposals to present to the wider Alliance partners, opening discussion on; alliance purpose, structure, outline communications plan and potential priority issues.


The timeframe for this looks like:

  • Aug: planning group meeting
  • Aug-Sept: planning group communications
  • Oct Nov: meeting of alliance partners
  • Dec: alliance launch

Obesity Action Scotland will chair and co-ordinate the planning group process and will draft papers for consideration at planning group meetings.
