EDV understand that the COVID-19 pandemic situation is continually evolving. We will keep you up to date with any changes to EDV’s events and services on this page. The EDV office is now closed to the public, however we want to assure you that we are still here and available to support you during this time.
EDV and COVID-19
The EDV Hub is continuing to operate remotely. We’re here to provide you with information, referrals and general support. We will do our best to answer your inquiries as soon as possible, but please be aware there may be a slight delay due to a reduced number of volunteers working in a remote environment.

Online Support options
We know that it’s important to have access to safe and convenient online support options during this time. We’re working hard to move as many of our face-to-face services online.
- Recovery Support Groups will be moved to an online format. We are currently working through different possibilities of what these groups may look like. We appreciate your patience as we work to bring you an effective online solution soon.
- ‘rALLY’, our Carers/Family Support Group, has been moved online through Zoom. The groups will meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7pm. This group is suitable for family/support people who are playing an active role in caring for someone with an eating disorder. rALLY groups are facilitated by parents who have personal lived experience of caring for a loved one with an eating disorder. Book your place here.
