Peer Led Support Groups

We have two online support groups - one for 'individuals' - those living with an eating disorder personally, and one for family, friends and carers. Both groups are self-guided and moderated by our support team who may be assisted by volunteers with lived experience. Our Support Groups are provided through the generosity of The Pip Foundation

We ask that anyone attending one of our support groups familiarises themselves with our Group Guidelines & Code of Conduct. Booking a place indicates that you agree to abide by these guidelines for the benefit of yourself and fellow group participants. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us using the email address below. 

Peer Support Group - Individuals 
Fortnightly, Tuesdays 10am-11.30am

Zoom based support group for anyone 18+ years with an eating disorder or eating distress. Up to 8 places per Zoom room. 

“Hearing other people’s journeys gives me hope”

The session is a safe space to share challenges and successes over the previous week, to learn more about recovery and what it means for you. You will be welcomed into a non-judgmental space and hear from those who have similar experiences. Participants are invited to speak and share their thoughts to a level that feels right for them. This means you are also very welcome to simply listen and observe. The session is moderated by EDA support staff assisted by trained volunteers.

Peer Support Group - Family & Friends
Tuesdays 10am-11.30am

Zoom based support group open to anyone 18+ years caring for, or concerned about, a loved one, family member or friend. Up to 8 places per Zoom room.

“I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders after talking today”

The session is a chance to share questions, concerns and coping strategies and to hear how others have managed in similar circumstances. You'll be talking with those who understand first-hand the daily challenges of supporting a loved one with an eating disorder. We'll also focus on practical strategies and support to help you guide your loved one towards recovery. The group is self-guided but facilitated by members of the EDA support team with personal experience of supporting a loved one through diagnosis and recovery, and assisted by trained volunteers.

Pip McManus

Our support groups are offered as part of Pip's Place Online which is supported by The Pip Foundation in memory of Pip McManus. We are very grateful for their support and generosity. 

Pip’s family and friends are fundraising to open an in-person EDA-led support hub, their ultimate vision and hope for the Foundation. By launching Pip’s Place Online first, we are able to start helping people in Pip’s memory sooner and reach people across the UK in a COVID-19 safe way.
