Training for Parents and Carers

We run a number of skills workshops for carers and those supporting someone with an eating disorder. Find the right workshop for you below.

Our Helpline is available to any carers who may need support, as well as anyone affected by eating disorders.

POD - Beat's e-Learning Platform


POD (peer-support & online development) is Beat's online learning platform, designed to provide people supporting someone with an eating disorder with a space to learn, share experiences and find community. On the platform you'll find a range of workshops, e-learning modules and forums that will help to equip you with the skills you need to support your loved one.

Developing Dolphins

Our Developing Dolphins workshop is for those who have been caring for a loved one with an eating disorder for less than five years.

Raising Resilience

Raising Resilience is a series of online workshops for carers. Along with others caring for someone with an eating disorder, you’ll learn new skills from an experienced eating disorder clinician.

Harnessing Hope

Harnessing Hope is an online carer skills workshop designed specifically for those supporting someone with an enduring eating disorder (one that has been consistently present for five or more years).
