SEED (Support and Empathy for people with Eating Disorders)

We are a group made up of ordinary people who have had first-hand experience of eating disorders in one form or another. We feel it is important to share experiences with others and help in any way possible. We know from personal experiences how difficult it is to obtain the professional help and assistance in overcoming eating disorders. We hoped that by starting Support and Self-Help Groups we would be able to offer help and advice. Our services have developed well beyond that, as we strive to bridge the gaps and meet the needs of those affected by this devastating illness.

Although Seed is not a Clinical Service, we will do our very best to support, advise and signpost sufferers, carers and loved ones appropriately, by giving people the tools to enable them to cope on a daily basis.

Marg Oaten MBE, Secretary and Co-founder.

“excellent support from SEED, after so many years of struggling.  Medical ‘help’ only referred to diet control and emphasis on losing weight, and advise to join weight watchers!!   SEED has helped to get to the root of the cause for binge eating, and I have been so encouraged by them on my journey & recovery:”

“SEED have helped me so much at the moment my eating disorder is not active and I think I have won the battle after 35 years”

 

SEED Toolkit

“I highly recommend this recourse. I have used it for years 9, 10 & 11. All pupils and myself found the package to be very educational. The pupils were very positive and it led to lots of discussion.

Well done Marg, Gemma and the team for making such a powerful recourse.
