PEDS Receives Lottery Grant!… to Provide Eating Disorder Training to Schools

We are excited to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 to deliver Eating Disorder awareness training to all the secondary schools across Peterborough. The aim of this training is to support early intervention, enabling pupils to access help quicker and teaching staff to feel more confident in detecting an Eating Disorder and signposting to the appropriate support.

PEDS Charity Skydive!

On 2nd September 2017, two very brave individuals (the Daughter and Brother of the Founders of PEDS) are taking to the skies to raise money for Eating Disorders. They have hit the £500 mark and if they can reach £1000, there is a possibility it may be doubled! Every penny counts!

Thank you, Mandy and Sue (Registered Nurses and Founders of PEDS)

 

Charities Commission Approves PEDS Name Change

We have officially changed the name of our charity from Peterborough Eating Disorder Charity to Personalised Eating Disorder Support (PEDS).

The change has been approved by the UK Charities Commission and our Registered Charity Number will stay the same: 1156578

The reasoning behind the name change is quite straight forward. More and more of our referrals are from outside the immediate area around Peterborough. whilst we are based in Peterborough, we are also receiving referrals from other areas.

We did not want it to appear that we were limiting our help to only those in the Peterborough area who needed it. We want to help – wherever you are.

A essential element of our name change is our move to a new website url: http://pedsupport.co.uk

 

Help via Skype

We have been working with a number of service users recently who haven’t always had the help they need local to home so have introduced the option of contact via Skype.

This can often be the first steps to somebody reaching out for help if either they are unable to travel, they are anxious or it is just too far initially.

To find out more, please get in touch. Wherever you are, whoever you are, there is always help.
