Sock It to Eating Disorders

26/02/2018 - 04/03/2018

We estimate that 1.25 million people across the UK suffer from these serious mental illnesses. But we don’t know how many are suffering in silence. At Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, we have a vision: an end to the pain and suffering of eating disorders.

Our essential Helplines and online support groups give sufferers and their loved ones a place to feel listened to, empowered, and supported – and it’s only possible because of people like you.

We need you to dig out your brightest, boldest socks this Eating Disorders Awareness Week. Ask your workplace, school, or university to stand up and Sock It to Eating Disorders. By wearing your socks and donating to Beat, you play a vital role in ending pain and suffering. It’s that simple.

And while wearing your wackiest socks is fantastic, you can take it one step further. A sports or dance class, or dinner party is a great way to boost your fundraising and have even more fun. The more we raise, the more lives we can change.

“You really have made my first step to recovery that little bit easier. Thank you so very much.” Youthline caller.
“Without the support of Beat, things would have been much harder.”
