Advocacy – Your Voice and Your Vote Matter

Federal MP Campaign

Do you feel unheard and unsupported in the public health space? 

EDFA members know first-hand the many service gaps and failings in the health system that prevent our loved ones from getting the treatment they need and deserve. 

The run up to the Federal election is the time to demand real action from our local Federal MPs to provide better support for people with eating disorders and their families and carers.

EDFA has identified the actions that must be taken to deliver a comprehensive approach to eating disorders

To help, we’ve prepared a range of materials to support your local advocacy with your Federal MP which can be found below. 

These include;


With EDFA members from all over Australia, it is time to find our collective voice and demand real action on eating disorders from our local Federal MPs.
