CarersHelpKitThe Carer Help Kit has been designed to provide carers of individuals with eating issues access to both succinct and detailed information on eating disorders, treatment options and how you can help your loved one. This Kit is an outcome of a one year project to build the capacity of carers of adults with eating disorders to navigate the service system and improve outcomes for those they care for.



We have a free borrowing library open to the general public for those able to visit our centre.

Our collection of books and journals cover topics including: eating issues, body image, youth, self-esteem, feminism, dealing with abuse, nutrition, and more.
