Hear about the tastelife course and its impact:

You are needed.

We meet so many people who are desperate for help, want to go on a tastelife course but as yet there is not one near them.

It is estimated that 4 million people in the UK have an eating disorder of some kind.*

The tastelife course is designed for sufferers of any eating disorder and/or friends and family. It is unique in bringing people together in this way. In a safe and accepting environment, group members are offered a toolkit for recovery and support.

Covid response: join with us as we take the tastelife course online and offer UK wide support to even more people. 

‘Excellent and practical content. Well put together, good pace, professional delivery. Excellent material, carefully thought out and considered. Thank you! I appreciated the lovely atmosphere and fun, despite the emotive topic. I am looking forward to giving people hope and imparting tools for them to use on their journey. I am ready to run the course!’

tastelife also offers:
