The Scottish Obesity Alliance serves as a forum for organisations to collaborate to influence policy and practice on obesity prevention in Scotland.

We work together to influence the Scottish and UK Governments policy on overweight and obesity.

We do this by:

  • Advocacy and communication
  • Identifying policy-relevant evidence and solutions
  • Sharing knowledge and evidence between members

The Scottish Obesity Alliance launched on 5 December 2018.



The Alliance Co-ordinator provides the Secretariat function.

The Alliance Co-ordinator is accountable to the Co-ordinating Group and is hosted and line managed by Obesity Action Scotland, a public-health focused unit based at Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow.
