Established in 2011, the British Obesity Society (BOS) is a dynamic and prominent charity dedicated to tackling the critical issue of obesity.
Comprising a diverse community of individuals who share a common vision, we are committed to enhancing the lives of all those affected by obesity and overweight across Great Britain.

At BOS, our aspiration is to craft a world where obesity ceases to be a prevailing public health concern. We envision a society where every individual has the opportunity to embrace a healthy and enriching life. This vision encompasses equal access to essential resources and unwavering support to nurture healthier lifestyles.
