Parent and Carer's Online Community

Welcome to the EDA Parent and Carer's Online Community. This online community has been created to help and support you if you have a friend or someone in your family who is battling an eating disorder. Through this platform you can share your feelings and experiences and give and gain support and encourgement from others in similar situations. To make a post  please go to the relevant category and click the 'make a post' button and once you are happy with it click 'submit'. Your post will then appear on the online community for others to respond to in their own time. 

To join this confidential Community please read the rules and register your membership. Some parents and carer's have chosen to create an anonomous user name. Thanks to Lottery funding this community is currently free, but donations will enable us to keep it running. If you have any problems logging on, or using the Online Community, or you would just like to give us some feedback please use the 'contact administrator' button on the home page.

Share the Good news; There can be challenging and exhausting times, but there are more positive times as well. In order to celebrate the good times and to  give hope to others you are invited to share your good news stories alongside an image. Please send them to the administrator using the link button at the bottom of each posts' page. We have been very lucky to have the picture of Becky Scholey and her sister we are sure there are more good news stories, if you have a picture and a good news story that you are happy to share please send it in. 

As a member of the online parent and Carer's community EDA would like to offer you a free copy of 'The Parent and Carer's  Guide to Eating Disorders' by Jane Smith  (RPP£7.99) If you would like a copy of this book please email the administrator  through the contact administrator button with your postal address.

                 Our first face to face support service is now open!

We're delighted to have recently opened the very first EDA Support Hub; a free weekly drop-in for face to face support and information. So far, we've secured funding for Bath, but our longer term vision is to have Hubs in key areas across the UK and we're hoping to head to Manchester next.

“It really helps to have somewhere to share my feelings and thoughts. Hearing from other carers offers me hope.”
