Sharing and Connecting with the Voice of Lived Experience
Across Australia and New Zealand, non-government community-based organisations incorporate the voice of lived experience in their services.
In the last year, NGOs have supported 1000s of individuals, families, professionals and organisations by providing hope that recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
We have a free borrowing library open to the general public for those able to visit our centre.
