Our supporters scheme offers a way for individuals affected by obesity, their families / carers and health care professionals to formally mark their support of OEN.

We will never reveal your details to a third party and we will never send you unsolicited email without your permission. We have the facilities available for people to make a voluntary donation towards the cost of running OEN.
For those who would like to take their involvement with OEN to the next level we offer a series of solutions based on your situation.

If you wish to apply for this role, please email Jackie.firstname.lastname@example.org. Jackie is one of the founding members and is part of the group’s leadership board.

We will make every effort to ensure that this interview is relaxed and friendly, so please do not let this process put you off.
If accepted the role will be offered to you for three months initially, subject to you obtaining a DBS check, references and signing the code of conduct agreement (see below). If you are unfamiliar with the DBS process or are unsure as to who can provide a reference, we would be happy to support you through this process. If, after this three months, both you and OEN-UK are happy to continue, you will be offered the role on a more permanent basis.

However, OEN UK would never send any additional information about you a third party without your permission. Induction training and ongoing support will be offered to assist you in this role.
