Beat is the UK’s leading charity supporting anyone affected by eating disorders or difficulties with food, weight and shape. It provides information and support through Helplines which people can call, text or email; online support including information, message boards and online support groups; and Helpfinder, an online directory of support services. It also runs specific projects, including their Emotional Overeating project (support groups for people who binge eat, compulsively overeat, feel they have emotional eating issues and are overweight or obese or struggling with their weight).
Beat provides expert training and conferences, resources and consultancy to health and social care professionals and schools. It also supports and encourages research into eating disorders. Through this it aims to challenge stereotypes and stigma, increase understanding and campaign for better services and access to treatment.
Finally, Beat works with Young Ambassadors, young people aged 14-25 with personal experience of an eating disorder. Fully trained and supported by Beat, they inspire others with the message that recovery is possible.
