"No-one has ever become poor by giving."

Anne Frank

An estimated 10,000 men and women across Somerset and Wessex suffer from eating disorders.  Eating disorders are a severe and enduring mental illness, with the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. SWEDA is helping to improve the life of people with an eating disorders.

SWEDA has recently been awarded a 5 year 'Reaching Communities' grant from The Big Lottery which has enabled us to fund a comprehensive Eating Disorders service throughout Somerset.

As the demand for our services continues to grow, we need your help more than ever. We need to ensure that we can provide these vital services, now and in the future.

There are a number of ways that you can support the activities SWEDA undertakes.

As a charity, SWEDA relies on donations to fund our invaluable services for people with eating disorders. Just a small donation can make a big difference to us.

Whether you would like to make cash donation, leave a gift in your will or organise a fundraising event in your community, we would welcome your support.

SWEDA would like to say a special thank you to Crispin School Year 8 students for choosing us as your charity of the year in 2016! 


“I had consistently been losing weight for more than 8 months and had become accustomed to eating very little. This triggered a return of my anorexia, after a 20-year period of recovery. SWEDA were able to offer me an appointment the very next day. When we met I was feeling very ill and frightened.I spoke to them about my fears, but then took the decision to go to my doctor on the way home. I was admitted to hospital within a few days.”
