Campaign with us
Creating change is at the heart of what we do, and we campaign to change and improve the lives of those who need to live gluten free, whether due to coeliac disease or another medical condition.
We work to influence governments, healthcare professionals, businesses and the public to create a better life for everyone who has to live gluten free, every day.
Decisions over things like health care and food differ in each of the four UK nations, so we work with the Governments and Parliaments of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as well as with the UK Government and Parliament in Westminster.
We know that gluten free foods can be on average three to four times more expensive and harder to get hold of than the same foods that do contain gluten; this can be even worse for budget items. For this reason, we work with policy makers and commercial partners across the UK to make the case for supporting more people to access the gluten free food that they need. We believe gluten free prescriptions play an important role in supporting people overcome this challenge. That’s why we continue to make the case for provision across the UK.
Whether it’s sending a child to school, spending time in hospital or just when eating out with friends and family, we know how important it is to be able to access appropriate gluten free food when out of the home. That’s why we’ve worked to improve support for children in schools across the UK. It’s what motivates us to support patients to receive the right care in hospitals.
And it’s what inspires us to deliver food safety schemes, working alongside food manufacturers and caterers. If you are a caterer wanting to know more about how to cater gluten free, why not request your FREE catering guidance here or visit our Food Businesses pages for more support. If you’re following a gluten free diet or caring for someone on a gluten free diet and eating out at one of our GF accredited venues, you could support the continued improvement of our GF accreditation scheme by becoming a ‘Mystery Diner’.
We work to raise awareness of coeliac disease, its symptoms and its challenges through creative campaigning, working with our members, stakeholders and partners in the media so that more people can get the diagnosis they need and the support they deserve.
