Our Service

It is a service you can self-refer to and can be accessed by both the individual experiencing the eating disorder and their support network.

Bespoke

EDS is unique, as they are
a multi-disciplinary bespoke community based service that will support individuals in their own home, or in an environment that feels comfortable to the individual.

Our Story

We (Julie, Lisa and Sarah) decided to set up EDS as collectively, we identified a void in the treatment of eating disorders within Norfolk.

During our time working within an in-patient facility, it became apparent that waiting lists were ever increasing to access specialised eating disorder treatment.

Treatment is often based on an individual’s body mass index (BMI) therefore, many individuals do not meet the criteria and are unable to access support until their eating disorder progresses. As a team, we feel passionately that we would like to support individuals who want to change by enabling them to access support when they most need it.

We also want to offer support to individuals who may have received treatment but are no longer able to receive this due to reaching a “safe” BMI.

Mission Statement

We provide expert eating disorder support for individuals and their families. We understand that the time for most effective treatment is the time in which individuals seek help. Therefore, we are keen to provide a service that is not dependent on an individual’s BMI- whilst individuals are feeling challenged with an eating disorder we want to continue to work with them. We also appreciate this can be a long and challenging process therefore we are willing to work with individuals on a long term basis.
