Supporting you supporting them - Eating Disorder Carer Group
What’s the deal with shipping?
We ship our subscription boxes on the first Wednesday of the month (this will apply for the very next month after you have ordered). One-off boxes are despatched under second class post throughout the UK, with P&P being charged as an addition. Ask us about international deliveries.
What if I have an allergy?
We do our best to hand-pick our foodie items for the boxes, but we know that people are increasingly affected by intolerances and allergies. We suggest if you are at all concerned about what may be in a forthcoming or a newly received box, you request details from us directly and we can give you reassurance from the supplier.
Are the boxes for boys and girls?
We have a male and female version of our ‘cute one’ box. We accept that some will feel there is a slight bias in femininity around our boxes – in part, a decision rooted in the fact that there are more females than males going through eating disorders – but, at any time we are happy to create a bespoke box with a special person in mind.
Which boxes are available for subscription?
Our cute one is the main subscription option at the point of launching Wednesday’s Child, but we are happy to send any size on a regular basis.
What if I’d like a bespoke box?
No problem whatsoever. Get in touch and let us know who we’re curating the box for – and when it must be received.
I make a great product. Can it feature in your box?
Certainly, we’d love to consider more suppliers and specialists who want to have their items in our box. Drop a line to our founder Debbie, for a chat, and we’ll take it from there.
Are you Suffolk-based and caring for an adult with an eating disorder?
Wednesday’s Child, a social enterprise dedicated to supporting anyone affected by an eating disorder, is delighted to launch a new 12-month online programme designed to offer insight, connection, practical advice and a safe, supportive space for carers of adult
eating disorder sufferers in Suffolk.
Starting this autumn and comprising 12 monthly online sessions, the course will give carers a regular opportunity to explore a range of themes around the subject of supporting an adult in their recovery journey from an eating disorder, and the chance to share with others facing similar challenges.
Guest contributors will be joining the webinars to share their expertise, including:
- Eating disorder therapists and psychologists
- Family therapist
- Lived-experience panellists (Parents and partners of adults who have fully recovered from these illnesses)
- Recovered sufferers
- Finance/benefits advisor
- Creative arts therapist
- Occupational therapist
All participants will receive a unique workbook of practical and reflective activities, as well as other resources designed to complement the monthly discussions.
The programme is fully funded (although donations to our work are hugely appreciated) and spaces are limited, so do get in touch as soon as possible if you require any further details.
DATES: Second Tuesday of each month, starting on 12th October 2021
ELIGIBILITY: Suffolk residents supporting an adult with an eating disorder
COST: Suggested donation of £5 per session
PLEASE NOTE: Due to funding limitations, this course is ONLY for those resident in Suffolk. Unfortunately we cannot accept any applications from outside Suffolk, so please do not book this course if you do not live in the Suffolk region. We very much hope to be able to offer this programme more widely in the future.
