Partnerships and Supporters
NDR-UK is committed to being a key partner to the dietetic and related health and social care community. We can only achieve this if we build and maintain relationships with partners and supporters who engage with us. Collectively they contribute invaluable resources – expertise, information, funding and precious time – to help ensure that our information materials meet the needs to patients.
The Scottish Government (Population Health Improvement Directorate) has been a key strategic and funding partner in the creation and on-going development of NDR-UK, helping to establish NDR-UK as a charitable company, from its predecessor SNDRi (Scottish Nutrition and Diet Resources Initiative). This support enabled NDR-UK to deliver its first 5-year strategic plan to become independent and grow towards self-sustainability.
The Scottish Government continues to provide strategic input and some on-going core funding and has continued to financially support the development of new resources.
NDR-UK works closely with the British Dietitic Association and it's Specialist Groups. Click here for further details.
