Previous Campaigns

Take a look below at some of the things we’ve previously worked on to help people affected by eating disorders. These are still important issues, and there are still lots of ways to get involved. Click on the individual campaigns to find out more.

Eating Disorders in the Workplace

We estimate that 1.25 million people in the UK are suffering from an eating disorder. Between sufferers themselves and their friends and relatives who may be supporting them, many people affected by eating disorders are members of the UK workforce. 

Emotional Overeating

There is considerable misunderstanding about emotional overeating. This leads to negative stereotypes, with many assuming that someone who is overweight is simply greedy or lazy and needs “more willpower” to eat and exercise healthily. 

Eating Disorders at University

Starting university is a huge change featuring many different challenges. For those suffering from an eating disorder, or vulnerable to developing one, it can be a particularly difficult time. 

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.
