New Beat Services - for people affected by eating disorders

Demand for their Helpline services has soared in recent months. Latest figures show that in the past six months demand has increased by 97% compared to the same period last year, with 28% of people reaching out to the Helpline from May – July 2020 linking coronavirus as the possible trigger for relapsing or developing symptoms.


Jo Whitfield, National Officer - Wales says:

"We had already increased our service provision to respond to this huge demand, including coronavirus support group The Sanctuary, and we are now further expanding with a new range of free, UK-wide support services

We have new peer-supported video group for anyone in Wales supporting a loved one with recovery from an eating disorder starting on Monday 28th September called Solace.

Facilitated by experienced eating disorder clinicians, the groups provide a safe peer support space for carers to find support and empathy from people who truly understand" 

Space on the group can be booked here:



Bolster is Beat’s new telephone coaching service for people who have an eating disorder. It’s designed to build confidence through recovery via a series of weekly phone calls with one of our advisors.


Raising Resilience 

This is Beat’s new workshop for parents, siblings, partners, and others supporting their loved one’s recovery.  Taking place via video, carers will learn new skills from an experienced eating disorder clinician to help their loved one towards recovery.



Nexus is Beat’s new telephone advice and coaching service for anyone supporting someone with recovery from an eating disorder. Through a series of weekly calls, it’s designed to provide carers with a place to talk through what they are going through and empower them to help their loved one towards positive change.  


The Helpline, which covers phone calls, one-to-one webchat, email and online peer support groups is now open from
