EDV Ambassadors are volunteers who share their personal stories of recovery. Ambassadors can be those with personal lived experience of an eating disorder or someone who has supported a loved one with an eating disorder (e.g. a parent).
Speaking publicly about their experience provides the opportunity to raise awareness of eating disorders and to offer hope that recovery is possible.
It is a requirement of all speakers that they have lived experience as a person who has recovered from an eating disorder or cared for someone who has recovered. The lived experience must also be recent (within approximately five years). For those who have recovered, we recommend a two-year recovery period.
