Organisations and Charities supporting Positive Body Image within the Fashion Industries

This is working towards objective 1, 2, 3 and 5.

Further information on further organisations and charities supporting positive body image within the fashion and beauty industries that I would like to contact in semester 2, in order to obtain information about their policies and guidelines.

UK All Parliamentary Group on Body Image (APPG)

“To provide a cross-party forum for MPs to conduct an inquiry and monitor on an ongoing basis the causes of body image anxiety. To explore what steps can be taken to promote body confidence, working with advertisers, the media, fashion industry and youth organisations.”

The Model Alliance US

“Model Alliance, a not-for-profit organization (application for recognition of 501(c)(3) status pending), with the assistance of fellow models.  Our goal is to work with progressive modeling agencies to give models in the U.S. a voice in their workplace and organize to improve their basic working conditions in what is now an almost entirely unregulated industry.” (Ziff, F, 2012)
