We have piloted the above scheme and have found this to be most beneficial to people find-ing themselves isolated when carers or loved ones go on holiday.
We are extending this scheme to cover support over the Christmas period !
We have various Holiday Buddies giving their time to support others. The Holiday Buddy does not have to have formal training they just need to be warm friendly and committed to making themselves available for the duration of the Holiday whether that be days, a week or two weeks.
I think first and foremost they have to have an excellent understanding of eating disorders and ideally having supported someone in their care. If you need to engage in this service simply ask Marg or Maria and you will be matched with a Buddy. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or (01482) 344084
