Nutrition Exchange Programme

From 2016 safefood will work more closely with the three professional bodies representing dietitians and nutritionists i.e. Irish Section of the Nutrition Society, British Dietetic Association and the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute. This approach will ensure safefood funding will integrate and complement existing funding available to dietitians and nutritionists in the future.

Details of funding is available directly from the three bodies. If you are a member of any of the three bodies you may contact them directly on the information provided below and they will instruct you on how to apply.
