Solace

Solace is a free video-based peer support group hosted over Zoom. It’s for anyone supporting somebody with an eating disorder.

What’s the aim of the group?

Solace gives you the opportunity to share how you’re feeling and get support from others who are caring for people with eating disorders.

How does Solace work?

The group is led by participants, while an experienced eating disorder clinician will facilitate and offer a theme to base discussion around, such as meal plans, setting boundaries and understanding why change is difficult. You’ll also get the chance to raise other points for discussion and, where possible, to speak with a Beat Ambassador, a person who has recovered from an eating disorder themselves.

How often is Solace available?

Solace runs seven times a week so that you’re able to join the group that most suits you. Times vary between 19:00-20:30 Monday to Thursday, Friday 10:30-12:00, and Saturday 12:30-14:00.

Four groups are open to everyone in the UK, and Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland also have a dedicated group each to ensure conversation is relevant to the healthcare systems in those nations. 

Do I have to commit to joining each week?

No. Every Solace group is booked individually, so you can decide whether you want to attend regularly or just occasionally.

Can I join more than one group per week?

You can, but please do be aware that spaces are limited and we would like to make sure as many people get support as possible.

What if I can’t join a group I’ve booked?

Please let us know as soon as possible if you won’t be using your space so that we can offer it to somebody else.

What is needed from me?

In order to join Solace, you’ll need a good internet connection and a working camera.

If you have other questions, please contact solace@beateatingdisorders.org.uk.
