Beat (formerly the Eating Disorders Association) is the UK’s largest eating disorders charity, helping those suffering from eating disorders.

How It Works

Beat was founded in 1989. Its UK-wide helpline offers help and support to people suffering from eating disorders. Beat aims to help sufferers understand their illness, and supports their recovery. Beat helps family and friends of eating disorder sufferers, assisting them with advice and skills. The charity also campaigns increase eating disorder knowledge among healthcare and other relevant professionals, and for better funding for treatment.

Fundraise for Beat individually or by joining an event such as the Three Peaks Challenge. You can volunteer with the helpline or as a coach. If you are someone who has experience with an eating disorder, or have a loved one who has, there are also opportunities to contribute to studies into eating disorder research.
