Eating disorders in Wales: Survey of Health and Social Care staff and volunteers

We are currently conducting a brief and anonymous survey to help us learn from the experiences and expertise of health and social care professionals in Wales who are providing treatment and/or support for people affected by eating disorders.

It should only take around 5-10 minutes to complete this survey and it would be brilliant if you are able to find a little time to complete the survey to help us understand better the current situation.  Thank you in advance for your support with this!


Support programmes for people experiencing or supporting someone with eating disorder recovery

We have some Welsh Government funded spaces on SharED (Peer-to-peer support for young people aged 14-25 provided over e-mail by volunteer befrienders) and Nexus (Carer support programme delivered by weekly scheduled coaching calls). For full information and to make direct referrals please visit:

**NB due to funding requirements, all participants need to have commenced the SharED programme by the 30 September!**

Our helpline is open 365 days of the year, offering support for anyone affected by an eating disorder:



Caring for loved ones with eating disorders In Wales

We are undertaking a survey to better understand the experience of carers and the need for support across each of the devolved nations. The survey findings will be used to inform Beat’s support services for carers, and to raise awareness of these services across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
