Writing a letter or email is the best way of starting the conversation about eating disorders with your local health service leaders. We have put together a helpful guide for getting started, with advice on structure, key facts and relevant Government policy you can include.
Just complete the form opposite and the Campaigns team will be in touch right away with your guide, and details of who to contact in your area. We’re here to help get your voice heard, so we’ll support you every step of the way.
- Personalised messages have much more of an impact. Beat can write generally about improvements needed across the country, but you are the expert in your experience in your local area and getting this across will make it more powerful and much more likely to make change.
- It doesn’t need to be long, just a few sentences about your experiences, what you think needs to improve and why this matters to you, will make all the difference.
- Receiving the same template letter from several campaigners can lessen the impact of what we’re saying. We need you to share your own experiences, to give the issue a face, a name and make it impossible to ignore.
