Fundraising at School

Fundraising at school

Fundraising at your school is an amazing way of raising awareness. You can help us continue to be there for people affected by eating disorders.

There are loads of different ways to fundraise for Beat. So why not sign up to fundraise, raise awareness and have some fun.

School staff are some of the best placed people to spot the early signs and give pupils they’re worried about support to get better.

School-age children are at a particularly high risk of developing eating disorders, with the pressures and transitions that come as part of school life among the possible triggers for these serious mental illnesses. Bullying, exams, difficulty adjusting to a new environment or way of working and worry about the future can all affect someone who is vulnerable to an eating disorder.

How To Get Involved...

Whether you have a unique idea or fancy taking part in one of our suggested activities, we are here to make your fundraising event a success!

Why not combine your fundraising with SPOT

SPOT (Schools Professionals Online Training) is our e-learning platform that is designed to enable school professionals to help pupils into treatment quickly.

SPOT provides you with online modules, resources and spaces to talk with other school professionals, and weekly drop-ins with clinicians, allowing you to share knowledge and advice, as well as discuss what you’ve learned.
