Events


Creating a community of Wednesday’s Child advocates and followers, means we’re able to increase peer support, and engage more people in dialogue around this awful mental health illness.
 Our events are a perfect way to take a step into our community, whether you’re caring for someone, battling your way through an eating disorder, or are recovered and wanting to become a future befriender.

We host a variety of events, designed to inform, to support, or to channel your new-found enthusiasm for life and to prepare you for future careers or opportunities. 

 

 

Heal

KITCHEN

Take a look at our latest list of Heal Kitchen events.

Each of our Friendship Lunches and Supportive Suppers are designed to have just small audiences and to feature a speaker or food demonstration, as well as a light ‘shared meal’ at which we can discuss challenges, make friends, and celebrate successes.

Recovery

Retreats

We love the idea of spending a little more time with you.

Our retreats are designed to enable you – and perhaps someone who supports you – to attend an overnight break which is recovery-focused.

Each one is held with a small number of guests, in a beautiful and peaceful property – perfect for considering your healing and allowing you to increase your peer network of support.
