SWEDA Christmas Appeal 2017

 PLEASE Remember SWEDA this Christmas

 We know that everyone who's had some connection with SWEDA values our work supporting people with eating disorders. If, amongst all the Christmas busy-ness, you are thinking of giving to a charity at this time of year, please consider putting us on your Christmas list.

 We are a small, friendly and highly effective charity and thanks to our generous donors this year, we have provided services to over 60 clients, running 16 support groups and 321 counselling sessions. Anyone who knows these debilitating illnesses will understand how important this is.  Next year we are aiming to increase our counselling provision by 30%.

 We also launched our new training package to schools and professionals and our outreach work raised awareness of eating disorders amongst more than 1500 students.

Any donation you can make helps us to continue our work. You can donate easily online at www.swedauk.org   Thank you!

Please have a look at our new video clips on YouTube; our 12 Days of Christmas are simple self-help strategies devised by SWEDA's counsellors. Do forward them on to anyone you know who might find them useful. 

Our mission is to engage with people affected by eating disorders, including family, friends and carers, by offering hope and enabling access to support services to empower recovery. Here's what some of our clients say: 

“I feel very grateful to be able to share my difficulties and concerns openly."

“Thank you so much for helping me to help myself.”

Thank you again and very best wishes to you this Christmas

PS.  We understand that this maybe a difficult time for you too.  Please do get in touch if you need our support.


“I saw a SWEDA support worker on campus at university. I had been struggling with binge eating disorder and compulsive exercise for about ten years. The SWEDA support worker was able to help me look at my relationship with food and my body in a different way. I have learned to be kinder to myself and they taught me techniques which helped me to slow down my thinking. Now I can go out and have fun without worrying all the time.”
