This week

is Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2021.

(1st - 7th March)

The focus this year is on binge eating.

It’s more common than most people think and can affect anyone of any age, gender, ethnicity or background. You might not think you know anyone affected by binge eating disorder, but you probably do. Binge eating disorder will affect one in fifty people in their lifetime.
