Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW

February 24, 2010

February 22nd-28th 2010 is Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

This information is from the beat-uk site

Thank you for your interest in Eating Disorders Awareness Week. During EDAW, beat will be working hard to raise awareness of eating disorders and our services right across the UK – and there are lots of ways you can join us.

Tuesday 23rd
beat Cymru launch, The Senedd/National Assembly for Wales

The week will also see the official launch of beat Cymru, our major awareness campaign in Wales. We will be launching the project at the Senedd, alongside a team of beat members and supporters. Carwyn Jones, Welsh First Minister, will also be in attendance.

beat Cymru will be the first major project in Wales to support people affected by eating disorders, as well as campaigning on their behalf.

We hope the project will provide new volunteering opportunities across Wales, as well as combating the stigma of eating disorders.
