We are Anorexia & Bulimia Care

ABC is a national UK eating disorders organisation with over 30 years of experience. We are passionate about people and recovery.

We provide on-going care, emotional support and practical guidance for anyone affected by eating disorders and eating distress.

Our telephone and email helplines are available to those struggling personally and their family, carers and friends.

We offer other support services including Befriending, online courses, online chat and nutritional guidance. (Please note, some services may be affected by the impact of Coronavirus. See latest updates). 

We work tirelessly to increase awareness and understanding of eating disorders through talks, training and campaigning for change. 

In 2019 we received 14,233 support enquiries by phone and email and 89,666 individuals accessed help from our website and online platforms. 

For more information, please read our 2019 Impact Report  


We need your help!

Like many charities and organisations, the impact of Coronavirus and the cancellation or postponement of fundraising events means we urgently need to raise £25,000 to continue to support all those that need us. We are very grateful for any amount you can give at this time. Thank you.

“For me recovery is about being out of your safe zone and feeling proud and liberated, forgetting the former shadow of yourself and re-inventing a new identity.”

Imogen, 25

“I never thought I would cope with my body changing during pregnancy but I’m stronger than I think I am and I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved.”

Kate, 32

“At the age of 57 I consider recovery a turning-point, enabling me to enjoy a full, active life which is no longer dominated by anxieties about food and weight.”

Olwen, 57

“You don’t have to be ready to recover, you just have to not want to spend one more day or one more hour or one more minute living like you are.”

Rachel, 41

“I've come a long way, to me recovery means freedom and being at peace with yourself. As you recover you start to feel real happiness - better than any you can get from starving or losing weight because it is REAL - and it's amazing.”

Maddy, 21

“To me, recovery is the effort each day towards a life where food is not an enemy, simply a nice accompaniment to a full lifestyle.”

Freya, 15
