Caring for a young person with ARFID?

Introducing ANCHOR, our new support programme for carers supporting someone with

Are you a parent or carer of a young person aged 5 – 17 who has an ARFID diagnosis or is displaying ARFID behaviours?

Do you need a safe space – somewhere you can open up to someone about how you’re feeling?

Are you able to commit to 12 weeks of weekly zoom calls?

Anchor is about creating a safe, supportive space to help develop your skills to support your young person (aged 5-17) and yourself.

Anchor is currently piloting in Essex and Kent. It is not currently widely available - we are working on expanding this support programme.

In the meantime if you need support or just someone to talk to who knows what you're going through, contact our Helpline.
