Campaigning is a key part of Beat’s work to end the pain and suffering of eating disorders, and this role is critical in helping to deliver our mission. Current campaigns include those focussed on reducing the time it takes for people to receive treatment, increasing funding for eating disorders research and ensure that best practice is followed by all eating disorder services.
