Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2020

Mums and dads, families and friends – together, we can beat eating disorders

1.25 million people in the UK are living with an eating disorder right now. But behind every one is a network of loved ones struggling too. In fact, we estimate that there’s 5 million of you out there.

If you love someone living with an eating disorder, join us to raise funds with Beat for Eating Disorders Awareness Week, 2-8 March 2020. Sign up today and we’ll send you a fundraising pack with everything you need to get involved.

Why we need you

Beat is the UK’s eating disorder charity. It’s thanks to the generosity and fundraising efforts of people like you that we’re able to continue to do our vital work supporting anyone affected by an eating disorder. That’s why we’re asking every one of our supporters to pull together for EDAW 2020 and help raise the funds we need. Together, with your help, we’ll also show the UK just how much eating disorders impact families and friends.

Let’s beat this.

A letter to her eating disorder

So there you are, sitting on my mate’s shoulder with her for all her waking and sleeping hours. You’ve been with her for just about a year now, but you’ve been there before, haven’t you? 

It was like a tornado going through our family and home

The effect on our family of our daughter’s illness is not something we can quantify and there is no way to sum it up.
