Fundraise for us
Each month we receive around 1,000 helpline calls and requests for support via email. We support people struggling with eating disorders by delivering personal, on-going care through our national helplines and unique befriending service. We support parents, families and friends. We also campaign on behalf of all those affected by eating disorders, lobbying government and MPs to ensure their needs are represented.
Take part in a sponsored event and run, walk or bike the Road to Recovery for ABC. Click here for upcoming events.
Take part in the Change Challenge
We know that talking about eating disorders is at the heart of raising awareness and tackling the stigma that prevents people struggling from seeking help. With every conversation, we all make one step closer to creating empathy and understanding of eating disorders, meaning more people are able to access help and support. We're challenging you to get chatting for ABC and raise £5 for each person you talk to. Whether it’s your friend, colleague, neighbour or postman, your challenge is to talk openly about eating disorders and encourage as many people as you can to join ABC's campaign for Change. Every conversation you have has the potential to raise £5 for ABC by each person you speak to texting CHANGE to 70800. How many conversations can you have and how many people can you reach?

FITNESS INDUSTRY PARTNERS
The fitness industry has the potential to play an important role in helping prevent the serious consequences of an eating disorder. While exercise is important for healthy living, it can become obsessional for those with eating disorders.
So we're actively seeking finess industry partners to help raise awareness and to support our work through fundraising activities.
