Communicating Nutrition

This project involves students from our Sutton Bonington Campus who are taking a Nutrition degree working in teams to support third sector organisations with a nutrition-related issue.

Past projects have included looking at the nutritional needs of older people, the barriers to good nutrition for people with minimal income and the nutritional content of food given out by a food bank. The project is also a module of the Nottingham Advantage Award which supports the students to maximise employability skills gained through their experience.

Charlotte Kerr and Farah Yasin, two recent student participants, talk about their experiences on the project in this video.

The project runs from January to March each year and students spen around half a day a week working on it together.  We would welcome enquiries from interested organisations. Please email Jacqui Storey for more information or call her on 0115 9513718 and in the meantime you can read a case study.
