A new group is being set up to help the 4,700 people in Gloucestershire who are currently suffering from eating disorders.

Conditions like anorexia and bulimia affect up to 6% of young women, but can also affect men, children and older women.

Now this new group will help sufferers and their families deal with the impact having the condition can have on all of them.

The group will be meeting on Thursday evenings at the university of Gloucestershire, Oxstalls Campus.

The meetings start on September 16th from 7.30pm until 9pm
