MP: 'Body image dissatisfaction in the UK has reached an all time high'

Jo Swinson MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Body Image said:

Body image dissatisfaction in the UK has reached an all time high and the pressure to conform to an unattainable body ideal is wreaking havoc on the self-esteem of many people.

Our inquiry took evidence from academics, the public, industry, charities and other experts, whose submissions formed the basis for the recommendations in the report.

I welcome the work of Central YMCA and other organisations in taking these recommendations forward.
