Your Charity of the Year

Together, we can help break down stigma and create safer spaces for those struggling with their relationship with food, weight and body. Supporting First Steps ED throughout the year is a great way to engage your own team and stakeholders with our work, whilst raising vital funds through enjoyable fundraising activities. Whether you’ve supported us before, or you’re still learning more about what we do, we’d love to have you on board.

Your partnership with us is unique to you, and can last one or more years, depending on your own goals and objectives. Contact us today about making First Steps ED your charity partner of the year, and together we can promote early intervention, prevention and supportive spaces for young people and their mental health. Our dedicated fundraising team are waiting to hear from you and help get you started!

How we can work together…

Founded in 2004, it is the unwavering hard work, dedication and passion of our trustees, volunteers, partners, funders and incredible staff which enables us to continue our multi-award-winning and quality-assured support to those struggling with eating disorders, as well as their parents, carers and a network of professionals.

It is to our team and our stakeholders that we express the greatest and sincerest gratitude that we can grow and continue to be an impactful all-ages eating disorder charity in the UK.

Our fundraisers and commissioners tell us how rewarding their involvement and engagement with First Steps ED is and without them, we couldn’t support our service users and their families.

Support from our partners, schools and businesses like you is vital in helping us promote early intervention and prevention, as well as offer effective and inclusive support for all ages, genders and backgrounds struggling with eating disorders.

Founded on Experience

We are proud to be commissioned by NHS organisations, as well as through grants from funders whose objectives align to our aims. Our founding principles are based on the experiences of individuals who have had, are still living with, and have recovered from eating disorders and other mental health conditions.

Supported by our stakeholders, we provide non-clinical early intervention and prevention services that complement the NHS and Public Health in the community, as well as a mild-to-moderate pathway for those in recovery.

Let’s work together to create a partnership that suits you and your needs, while supporting our charity.
