Eating Disorders Victoria

Supporting Eating Disorders Victoria

$
Eating Disorders Victoria (EDV) is the primary source of support, information, community education and advocacy for people with eating disorders and their families in Victoria. We connect those affected by eating disorders with the people, services and hope they need for recovery. 


What will you be supporting?

Funds will be used to support EDV's services which support thousands of people affected by eating disorders each year. EDV provides a range of services through our experienced staff and network of volunteers, including:

  • The EDV Hub, a 5 day a week telephone, email and face-to-face service providing information, support and referral information
  • Support groups for people in recovery and for families and friends
  • Peer Mentoring Program that matches people in recovery with someone who has recovered from an eating disorder
  • Psycho-education programs for people affected by, or at risk of developing an eating disorder
  • Education activites for schools, workplaces and business to raise awareness and promote early intervention
    awareness raising activities in the community
  • Professional develpment training for professionals such as GPs, teachers and those in the fitness industry
  • Psychological and dietetics services at our clinic in Abbotsford

How will my funds make a difference?

Donations will allow EDV to keep our some vital services free and accessible. Examples include:

  • $50 funds a peer mentoring activity, such as preparing and cooking a meal.
  • $120 gives a young person the opportunity to participate in a Body Project Australia workshop, an early intervention program that targets body image concerns in adolescents.
  • $250 makes it possible for our telehealth nurse to continue to connect with and case manage people in recovery in the community.
  • $500 sponsors a volunteer to train and work on the EDV Hub for 12 months.

What will this mean?

  • By joining EDV on our mission, you will help ensure that the 1 million Australians who are estimated to have an eating disorder get the help they need.
