The Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group. It's a networking, ideas, discussion and interest group for anyone in Scotland with a professional interest in eating disorders. Please note: this is NOT a support group for those experiencing eating disorders.
A group of us started a similar network group in 2012 and it continued until 2016. This was for anyone interested in eating disorders in a paid or voluntary professional capacity from different parts of Scotland who would like to network, meet for discussions, gatherings, focus groups, social activities, events and lots more.
The group then hosted various events and gatherings including: 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 and closed in 2016.
We are now re-launching and re-naming the group in 2019 and it will be known as the Glasgow and West Eating Disorders Networking Group. 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.
