Every day on our helpline we hear about the difficulties faced by those seeking help for their eating disorder. People misdiagnosed, not listened to or referred onto long waiting lists.
We’re campaigning to make a difference to the lives of every one of those people.
We’re fighting across the UK for greater awareness of eating disorders; for healthcare professionals to have a better understanding of them and to be empowered to make immediate referrals to high quality treatment . Treatment that supports the individual and their loved ones. Treatment that is accessible, person-centred and leads to a full and sustained recovery.
