About Us

We are committed to raising the profile of Health & Wellness Influencers worldwide and supporting the professional development and credibility of bloggers and influencers. We are working to promote and expand the opportunities available to bloggers.

Credible information has the power to influence consumers decision-making process and drive positive uptake when it comes to choosing a wellness product or service to opt into.

We protect the public by regulating bloggers and influencers creating wellness content. To do this we:

Regulate

set standards for professionals' education and training and practice

Collect

keep a register of professionals, known as 'registrants', who meet our standards

Monitor

take action if professionals on our Register do not meet our standards

We regularly consult healthcare professionals and other key stakeholders, to get their views on the work we do. This is underpinned our core values: transparency, collaboration and responsiveness, and a commitment to offering credible health and wellness content to the public.

Who we regulate

As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life, “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.


The Health and Wellness market space is dominated mostly by content providers sharing information about everything relating to beauty, fitness, mental wellbeing, healthy eating and nutrition.

Our primary objective is to provide public protection by ensuring that health and wellness influencers, work to high standards of practice when producing consumer content.
