Norfolk: More Help to Beat Eating Disorders

More help is being made available for people with eating disorders and their families.

The national charity Beat is launching four new self help and support groups in the area.

The groups, opening in February, will cover most of Norfolk including Norwich; South and, North Norfolk and will provide support for sufferers and carers.

Beat Network Development Officer Louise Dunne: “Beat Network groups supported over 9500 people in 2011 and we’re pleased that we are now opening more groups in Norfolk. Beat are holding new group meetings in Norwich to support people over 18 years of age who are dealing with an eating disorder in their lives. Whether you are personally affected, a carer or a concerned family member or friend the Beat groups will provide an opportunity to offer support and share experiences. The Norwich groups are launching with an Open Information Evening on Wednesday 1st  February, 6.30pm-8.00pm, so please come along to meet the Group Facilitators and find out what the groups can offer. The 2 separate groups will then meet at NORCAS, 35/37 Exchange Street, Norwich, NR2 1DP on the First Wednesday of each month between 6.30pm and 8.00pm, starting on the Wednesday 7th  March.
