Current Campaigns

With all of our campaigns, we hope we can move a step closer to getting everyone with an eating disorder the early treatment they need and deserve. Click the links below to learn about what we’re working on right now, as well as how you can help make a difference. 

Ensure GPs can refer sufferers to treatment without delay

Early treatment is vital for the best chance of recovery. The first step is visiting the GP, who can refer patients to an eating disorders specialist. But for GPs to do that, they need to be equipped to identify an eating disorder in its early stages. 

Tell your MP that eating disorders matter to you

Research by Beat shows that, on average, three-and-a-half years pass between the symptoms of an eating disorder emerging and treatment starting. The sooner someone gets the treatment they need, the more likely they are to make a full and sustained recovery.

End the Wait

Even after referral to a specialist and diagnosis, it can take a long time for people to be able to start treatment. Research in 2015 found that in over 40% of cases, time taken for a diagnosis and waiting time for appropriate treatment is more than six months.
