Don’t know how to help? Can’t imagine ever being free of the eating disorder?

Send for our booklets, created to help.

‘I think every parent or friend of someone with an eating disorder should have this great resource’

‘If only I had had this when our daughter became ill with bulimia … as it was, no one had any ideas to help us’


Cost: – if you would give us a donation of £3 per booklet to cover printing and postage, we can get help to more people. Tell us where to send your booklet here. Donate here.
