Can you help us?

Eating Disorders Families Australia (EDFA) is a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation. Our mission is to support, educate and empower families and carers impacted by an eating disorder.

why volunteer with edfa?

As a national organisation, we provide services to families and carers across the country. Our efforts to support carers reflect a comprehensive approach to eating disorder services – from prevention and early intervention to diagnosis, treatment, recovery and maintenance.

Our services include Carer Support Groups, EDucation Webinars, Counselling, Carer Support Forum and advocacy.


Why Volunteer?

Carers with lived experience have unique insights and empathy to support other carers.
