It’s Malnutrition Awareness Week! (5th – 12th Oct 2020)

Now in its 3rd year, UK Malnutrition Awareness Week has been set up by BAPEN and the Malnutrition Task Force to encourage better awareness of the serious issue of under-nutrition in older people and highlight the importance of screening those at risk.

For UK Malnutrition Awareness Week this year we are launching our #TimeForChangeScot Campaign.

2020 has proved more than ever that urgent action is needed to create better food systems for older people in Scotland. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown into the spotlight the challenges and barriers older people face on daily basis to access food and eat well and this needs to change.


There are lots of ways to show your support during 5th – 12th October. Whether it’s making some noise on social media, ordering a malnutrition toolkit or booking a training session, even the smallest contribution will help make a difference.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter all week as we’ll be sharing lots of exciting announcements including the launch of our new Podcast, our 2 year learning report: The Hidden Problem and the findings from our research study in partnership with the University of Glasgow.
