Beat, the largest campaigning eating disorders charity in the UK, is delighted to announce the launch of its much anticipated Carers’ Forum.

The Carers’ Forum is a completely new website – a dedicated space for anyone providing help and support to someone with an eating disorder. Message Boards, an online ‘chat’ facility and a Carers’ Blog are amongst the exciting range of interactive facilities on offer, enabling carers to connect with and support each other. It also offers a wealth of information for carers: tips for talking to someone with an eating disorder, handling mealtimes, dealing with professionals, and details of various other organisations offering help with a range of issues. But that’s not all: the site boasts huge potential, with its development set to be heavily influenced by Beat’s service users. (May 2011)
