ASO Regional Groups

Founded in 1967, the ASO has become the UK’s foremost charitable organisation dedicated to the understanding, prevention and treatment of obesity. In addition to the ASO national meetings, we aim to have group meetings in every region of the UK in order to meet the ASO mission and objectives at a regional level. Additionally, establishing and maintaining regional group meetings will offer additional communication channels between the ASO and its members and allow the ASO to be more responsive to its members’ needs which is a strategic aim of the ASO.

The ASO has a network of established regional groups throughout the UK. Meetings are held periodically and are organised locally with some administrative and financial support from the ASO Office and the Trustee with the role of Regional Groups Officer. To find out more about the ASO Regional Groups please read the Regional Group Terms of Reference.
