The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is an independent health education charity and the world’s longest-established public health body. Our vision is that everyone should have the opportunity to optimise their health and wellbeing.
Established in 1856, the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is an independent campaigning and educational charity dedicated to improving and protecting the health of people just like you – both in the United Kingdom and around the world.
Our Membership includes thousands of healthcare professionals, food safety specialists, environmental health experts, policy makers, academics, students and many other people from all walks of life, who share one thing in common - we care passionately about protecting the public's health.
To help fund our work - and safeguard our independent voice - we offer a variety of services that contribute in different ways to fulfilling our mission. Whether that involves educating people directly, Training them in their workplaces or schools, publishing our respected peer-reviewed journals (Public Health and Perspectives in Public Health) or by providing Accreditation for third-party health campaigns and training programmes. Significantly, we are also the UK's leading OFQUAL/CCEA regulated Qualifications Awarding Organisation in the field of public health. And, every day, hundreds of thousands of RSPH Qualified professionals fulfil vital roles - quietly and without fanfare - in communities the length and breadth of the country.
Whatever we do, we remain incredibly proud that, over the last 160 years, our work has had such a positive and lasting impact on the lives of many millions of people. And, as we adapt and evolve to meet the public health challenges of the 21st century, we hope that you - individuals, businesses, public organisations, academic institutions and our friends in the media - will work with us to fulfill our mission and share in our achievements.
