The HelpFinder is a database of services providing support to people affected by eating disorders and emotional overeating. The HelpFinder provides individuals with a tool to find specific types of support services in their local area.
HelpFinder lists both statutory services (i.e. those provided by the NHS) and non-statutory services including voluntary organisations, private healthcare providers, counsellors and therapists. Most of the organisations are required to pay a fee to be listed on our database.
The HelpFinder also includes contact information for the Beat Network of Self Help and Support Groups. These are open groups available for carers or sufferers affected by Eating Disorders. They have been set up UK wide by the Beat network of volunteer group facilitators and support volunteers. To find out more information please click here.
To get the maximum number of results, try starting with a location search by either postcode or county. You can then refine your search by adding Organisation Type or Organisation Name.

The advantage of the 'step up to recovery programme' is that greater Importance is placed on working collaboratively with service users in the local community to prepare for a bigger life such as attending university, seeking employment and living more independently. Service users and carers have benefited from staff with expertise in supportive eating working alongside them in a social setting like a canteen or restaurant.
The Step Up to Recovery Service starts from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm daily. Treatment is based on the "recovery model" led by occupational therapists/multi-disciplinary team as well as recovered patients.
Families will be provided with intensive skills training over 3 days in group format with additional individual family meetings.
