Body confidence report out now

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image has today published its report into the causes and consequences of body image dissatisfaction in the UK today.

The report is based on evidence submitted to a public Inquiry which was conducted between November 2011 and February 2012.  It includes evidence from a range of organisations and individuals, including representatives from industry, the voluntary sector, healthcare professionals, academics and the general public; Professor Susie Orbach, convenor of AnyBody/UK Endangered Bodies provided evidence, as well as AnyBody member Sue Thomason. The report can be accessed here:

Central YMCA, a national health and education charity, will now be working with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image and a number of other non-commercial organisations to take forward the policy recommendations in a campaign which will be launched later this year which will raise public awareness of many of the issues contained in the report.

We would encourage you to complete a short survey on the website and to comment on the report  – it will help us inform the campaign we are launching later in the year.
