Children and Young People's Community Eating Disorder Services - Warrington

Our Young People's Community Eating Disorder Service provides assessment, treatment and support for young people with eating disorders and their families.

Our service aims to promote the early detection and treatment of eating disorders through a combination of one-to-one support and family therapy, along with support from a qualified dietitian. 

Through our partnership with leading national eating disorder charity Beat, we also work closely with local schools and colleges to raise awareness and support the identification of eating disorders amongst pupils and staff.

Who is our service for?

Our service is for children and young people age eight to 18 living in Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Warrington who have symptoms of an eating disorder. 

This could be one of a number of types of eating disorder, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia or eating disorder not otherwise specified (also known as EDNOS).

Who do we work in partnership with?

Our Young People's Community Eating Disorder Service works in partnership with leading national eating disorder charity Beat and St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
