The Malnutrition Task Force (MTF) are united to combat preventable and avoidable malnutrition and dehydration among older people in the UK. Established in 2012, they believe that good nutrition and hydration is fundamental to delivering dignified care, and enabling older people to live fulfilling and independent lives.
Tackling malnutrition is everybody’s business. The MTF works with partners across sectors and settings to raise awareness of undernutrition in later life and its causes, provide information and guidance, and spread best practice and innovation to improve the lives of older people in the UK.
