South Yorkshire Eating Disorders Association (SYEDA) is a local independent charity supporting people affected by eating disorders in South Yorkshire.
They provide one to one therapeutic and practical support for people experiencing eating disorders and for families and friends. They also facilitate groups and deliver education and training sessions in schools, colleges and the wider community.
- Talking Therapies – these are available both to people with an eating disorder as well as to friends and family members. Their counselling team provides a number of different therapeutic approaches.
- Occupational Therapy – to work with people with eating disorders to set practical goals and to help people engage in meaningful activities.
- Support Groups – SYEDA offer separate support groups available for people with an eating disorder and friends and family which both take place on the first Tuesday of the month from 7.00-8.30pm. There is no need to book or make a referral to attend – just come along. If you are attending for the first time, then the facilitators will be happy to introduce themselves and explain more about the group, you can go earlier for an informal chat.
