How we can help

Confidentiality within EDS

EDS offers a private and confidential service to you on our phone and email helplines and in our self-help group.

However, there are a few specific exceptional cases when we have a duty of care to break confidentiality, for example:

We would always try and seek your consent first, wherever possible, and we would only share the relevant safeguarding information with the most appropriate professional.  

If you have any questions about our confidentiality policy, please just ask us.

Eating Disorders Support provides a helpline, email support, and a self-help group for people of all ages, offering support and information about eating disorders no matter where you are in your journey.

Eating Disorders Support is an organisation providing help and support to anyone affected by an eating problem such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder. It also provides help for those who are caring for or supporting someone with an eating disorder.

Eating Disorders Support is a registered charity staffed and run entirely by trained volunteers, experienced in supporting individuals who have problems associated with eating. Support is provided via a confidential phone helpline, email support, or online self-help group meetings.

Eating Disorders Support is also able to provide displays, information packs and give talks about eating disorders to schools and other organisations.
