Parent and Carer's Online Community
Welcome to the ABC Parent and Carer's Online Community. If you have a friend or someone in your family who is battling an eating disorder, then this online community, perhaps the first of it's kind, has been created to help and support you. To give you the platform where you can share your feelings and experiences, to gain insight, support and encourgement from others in similar situations. The Onilne Community membership has been growing steadily since its launch earlier this year. If you have any problems logging on, or using the Online Community please use the 'contact administrator' button on the home page.
To join the Community please read the rules and register your membership, this is a confidential community. Some parents and carer's have found it advisable to choose a user name that would not be identifiable to family and friends, furthermore it may be advisable to refer to your child rather than your son or daughter. Thanks to Lottery funding this community is currently free, but donations will enable us to keep it running.
Supporting someone who is battling an eating disorder can be challenging and exhausting, but there are more positive times as well. In order to celebrate the good times and to give hope to others you are invited to share your good news stories with an image if you would like to. Please send them to the administrator using the link button at the bottom of each posts page.
There is live chat on every Monday evening between 6 pm and 8 pm. Live chat is an opportunity to chat directly with the ABC team, this is not a group chat. The chat envelop appears on the Home page. There is no live chat on Bank holidays.
Your opinions are invaluable to ABC and will help us to continue to grow and shape this platform you can do this by using the contact administrator button on the home page and the poll at the bottom of the page.
As a member of the online parent and Carer's community ABC would like to offer you a free copy of 'The Parent and Carer's Guide to Eating Disorders' by Jane Smith (RPP£7.99) If you would like a copy of this book please email the administrator through the contact administrator button with your postal address.
