Health Action Campaign launched in 2015 to encourage more action to tackle preventable illnesses - including those caused by smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet and lack of exercise. We believe that everyone has a part to play in creating a healthier UK, including the government, businesses, employers more generally, health professionals and the public.

Given rising levels of mental ill-health, not least among children and young people, we believe that action is also needed to reduce the preventable causes of mental illness.

We're a not-for-profit organisation made up of expert volunteers from a range of backgrounds, including medical science. Our Annual Review 2017 - 2018 explains more about our work.

Here's Why we need a campaign and What action is needed.


How you can help 

Do you believe that when it comes to health, prevention is better than cure? Do you agree that we need to give higher priority to prevention in the UK? If so, we'd welcome your support. 

You can help us by: 

  • Volunteering - as a researcher, a blogger, a campaigner or a fundraiser
  • Encouraging your family, friends and colleagues to support our work and to spread the word 
  • Making a Gift Aided donation - we're an entirely voluntary organisation, so we have very few 'overheads' to cover and the money we receive can go straight to help us research and campaign to reduce preventable illness.
