I am so pleased to be offering Crawley’s first parent support group for those with children currently experiencing or recovering from an eating disorder. Eating disorders (ED) are a debilitating illness which affect not only the victim but also the families and friends of the person involved. Therefore this support group aims to offer a safe haven for family members to be able to seek support to allow them to manage the day to day challenges experienced. The focus of the group is to offer parents and carers of children, teenagers or older children with a support network for the duration of their child’s treatment. This will include appropriate sign posting where possible.

The aims of the support group are to:
– Offer a safe environment for carers to share and discuss their experiences
– Provide information and advice about a range of eating disorders to enable carers to develop a clearer understanding of symptoms and the illness
– Sign post to local services and support networks
– Guidance and support from local guest speakers specialising in or with specialist knowledge of eating disorders

Please note that this group’s support focusses predominantly on those experiencing the symptoms or diagnosis of eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS, BED. If your child’s needs are not covered in these please contact Nicky directly on 07474 710234 or at info@astepatatime.org.uk to ensure that the group will meet your needs.
