TEDD Group

TEDD stands for The Eating Disorders Discussion Group. It's a networking, ideas, and discussion group for anyone in Scotland with a personal or professional interest in eating disorders.

 

A few years ago, a group of people in Scotland became interested in starting a network group. This was for anyone interested in eating disorders either in a personal or professional capacity from different parts of Scotland who would like to network, meet for discussions, gatherings, focus groups, social activities, events and lots more.

 

Such a group started in 2013 and hosted various events and gatherings: large networking afternoon (Glasgow); social outing to the theatre (Edinburgh); discussion groups (Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling); film screening (Glasgow) and lots more! It was known by a different name then.

 

The group is now known as TEDD. We hope to start re-introducing this soon. If you're interested in getting involved as a Member, co-ordinator, or volunteer, please do get in touch!

Networking is a great way to identify....best practice. Learning from what others do is a valuable strategy.

What We Do

What Type of Things Does TEDD Do?

 

You might be thinking 'What kind of things will TEDD do?' The answer is: as much as we can! While the aim of TEDD is 'networking' and creating discussion groups, we think that this can involve a lot of things and lots of different people from many parts of Scotland. We would love to hear your ideas and comments, as we are open to new ideas and experiences.

 

Here's some ideas and suggestions. We've already done some of these and look forward to more future meetings, events, gatherings and networking!:

 

  • Workshops.
  • Discussion and Focus Groups.
  • Coffee and Chat Groups/Social Events.
  • Research and Experiences.
  • Talks and Presentations.
  • Informal Meetings and Gatherings.
  • Sharing experiences, information, knowledge and ideas.
  • Meeting and talking with as many people as possible and keeping the topic alive.
  • Other (suggestions welcome).
