Are you the parent of a loved one in recovery?
Skills Needed: Empathy, lived experience of an eating disorder in the family, friendliness, understanding, a genuine desire to help families.
We need parents or carers with lived experience of caring for someone with an eating disorder (who is currently well) to volunteer to be trained as support group facilitators to run monthly meetings (as part of the EDFA team) to support other parents and carers as they navigate the difficult road to guiding a loved one towards recovery.
If you feel you would like to give back to support other carers, be a voice of hope and encouragement, and you are willing to be trained as a facilitator, or can help in any other way, please contact us today.
