About

Established in 2011, BOS is a leading charity within the obesity sector. We are a collective group of individuals that share the same vision looking to improve the lives of everyone affected by obesity and overweight in Great Britain.

2022 see’s the beginning of a new strategic vision for the charity with the exciting appointment of AfN Nutritionist and Nutrition Lecturer Louise Payne, who arrives at the charity as Co-Chairperson, with Paul Evans (previously Vice Chairperson).

 The board, headed up by charity President Jane de Ville-Almond, has written their new 2025 strategic vision ‘to create a healthier environment and change the narrative around obesity’ with a number of exciting campaigns planned for the months ahead.
