About Us

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 vision. Whether that involves educating people directly through our Qualifications, 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 regulated Qualifications Awarding Organisation in the field of Public Health. 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 a positive and lasting impact on the lives of 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 vision. And share in our achievements.


Our Strategic Priorities

The RSPH exists to improve and protect the public’s health and our activities sit broadly within six strategic priorities.

These priorities define and determine our areas of focus so that we can maximise our impact and the delivery of our mission: to enable everyone to have the opportunity to improve and protect their health and wellbeing.

Creating healthier environments

Health at every age

Improving the public's health

We are committed to reshaping different environments and settings so that they support the public’s health. Our vision is to optimise health and wellbeing for all. This covers every age and stage, from giving every child the best start in life, through to providing critical support at key milestones such. Our work to improve the public’s health recognises the complex nature of changing behaviour, and that this is often driven by social determinants of health rather than personal choice.

Protecting the public’s health

Wider Public Health Workforce

Working internationally

In addition to advances in health protection, the prevention and control of infectious diseases and other threats has provided the opportunity to optimise the public's health. With over 15 million workers including firefighters, hairdressers and postal workers, the wider workforce can support the public’s health in a variety of ways. We work on an international platform, connecting thousands of members from around the world and delivering policy and projects which stimulate global debate.
