We appreciate the challenges faced by colleges by offering a range of social education during PSHE and health promotion events. SWEDA can provide a range of bespoke holistic responses to meet the students' needs.

  • What is an Eating Disorder and where can I get support?
  • What is the relationship between social media, self esteem and eating disorders?
  • How does the role of advertising and the media relate to body image?


Professional development support for school and college staff is also available to ensure they feel confident in their abilities to respond to the needs of students affected by eating disorders. Quotes are available on request for these services.
