Thank you for considering First Steps ED for your fundraising. You may already have an idea of what you want to do, but before you get started, it is important to ensure your activity is safe for yourself and everyone involved.
If you are in recovery or have previous experience of an eating disorder it is important to always put yourself first. Please read this document and do not organise or take part in an event which could cause problems for yourself or your recovery.
This guide is designed for anyone struggling with an eating disorder as well as family and friends of those struggling. If you’re feeling anxious, worried or stressed about the current situation that is a completely normal response and it’s okay to feel that way. You are not alone; the whole world is experiencing this new challenge together. There are things you and people around you can do to lessen the worry and anxiety.
Children’s Book Addressing Eating Disorders
This children’s book (written by academics from the University of Derby) aims to help children across Derby and Derbyshire to understand the importance of healthy eating habits. We are proud to have supported the publish of this book, which is the latest in the Whoopsie Doodle Little Noodle series, based on the adventures of a Jack Russell puppy.
