Free support group for carers of adults with eating disorders
What we do
The Carers’ Support Group at the Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders (YCED) aims to support people who care for anyone over 18 who is living with an eating disorder. Through sharing our knowledge and experiences, and offering empathy and understanding, we hope to help other carers support their loved one through recovery.
We are based at Seacroft Hospital, Leeds.
If you are concerned about a loved one’s immediate health you should consider contacting your GP or Accident & Emergency department.
Information about eating disorders can be found at www.B-EAT.co.uk.
“I have been struck by [the facilitator’s] warm, empathetic manner and ability to grasp the essence of (often complex and longstanding) family situations and illness history. She is able to understand issues from multiple perspectives (parent/carer, sufferer, clinician) and provide a fresh approach and suggestions in a situation which may have previously felt very “stuck”.
Partners & commissioners
