Take part in our latest campaign

We don’t have a specific campaign at the moment. But if you notice any ads for junk food shown on TV during children’s viewing hours, let us know.

Write a letter

You can write letters to the paper or your MP about obesity related issues.   Newspapers sometimes publish op-ed pieces.

Check out advice on writing letters and op-ed pieces –  Prevention Institute website

Talk to your MP

Talking to MPs can be effective. They often have “clinics” where they talk to local constituents. MPs are keen for photo opportunities and stories for their newsletters. It is useful to tell them about obesity issues in your area such as barriers to healthy eating or exercising. Or you could talk to them about the importance of retaining regulation-making powers in the Public Health Bill.

Make a submission

From time to time Parliament and other agencies call for public comment on draft policies or strategies. When this happens we put the details on our home page and encourage supporters to make a submission.

Already we have made submissions on Public Health Bill, the Health Select Committee Inquiry into Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, and the review of advertising codes.
