Registered Charity No: 801343 (England & Wales), SC039309 (Scotland).

Beat is the UK’s eating disorder charity. Eating disorders are widely misunderstood and stigmatised illnesses. They claim more lives than any other mental illness and too often leave the families of those affected overwhelmed, desperate and broken. They are complex illnesses, but we know they are treatable, and recovery is possible. Beat’s vision is a society where fewer people suffer eating disorders, where people with eating disorders experience care and understanding, and where they can access the treatment and support they need.

We campaign for positive change for people who are suffering so that they can get the help they need and deserve as quickly as possible; we run and assist with research to learn more about what causes eating disorders and how best to treat them; and we provide practical support and emotional guidance to anyone affected by eating disorders through our national online and helpline services, available 365 days a year. Our aim is to end the pain and suffering caused by these illnesses.
