Being a carer for someone living with an eating disorder can often be an exhausting, distressing and isolating experience. At EDV, we believe it is vitally important that carers and loved ones have access to specialised support services.
This page details the range of free and low-cost support services EDV offers carers to help you get the information, resources and support you need.
EDV’s services are informed by the lived experience of people who have experienced eating disorders and those that have cared for them. Many of our staff, volunteers and board members have lived experience of eating disorders. We aim to provide empathetic and helpful support in everything that we do. Our range of services cover the breadth of the eating disorder journey, from first diagnosis to recovery, relapse and maintenance.
Eating Disorders Victoria acknowledges that carers can be anyone – parents, partners, siblings, children, in-laws, close friends etc.
