The online community for carers
Welcome to the Beat Carers' Forum!
This is a dedicated space for anyone who supports someone with an eating disorder: family members, friends - even teachers and colleagues.
New online support groups
The final Carers' Chat has come and gone and we're excited to announce the launch of Beat's new Online Support Groups - with sessions to be offered for carers and recoverers.
We're delighted to be able to offer this new service, ensuring that this much needed and often praised support is accessible to everyone, regardless of geographical location. Visit the main Beat website for more information.
Beat is the UK’s leading nationwide charity supporting people affected by eating disorders and campaigning on their behalf.
Over 1.6 million men and women of all ages and backgrounds in the UK are affected by eating disorders.
We aim to change the way people think about eating disorders, challenge the stigma that people with eating disorders face and campaign for better services and treatments.
Beat provides helplines for adults and young people, a UK wide network of self help and support groups and online support including information, message boards and live chat.
We also provide expert knowledge, education and training to health and social care professionals and support and encourage research into eating disorders.
Beat's vision is simple: eating disorders will be beaten.
