At Men Get Eating Disorders Too we will remember 2013 as an immensely exciting and rewarding year. We have achieved much of what we aimed for, including a well-received series of workshops around the country; we’ve been featured in national media; we’ve been running a pilot peer-support group in Brighton & Hove; and we’ve made enormous progress in getting ourselves heard in campaigning and policy-influencing circles. Not bad for a young, specialist charity.
But right now we’re impatient because there’s still so much to do. We’ve got huge plans for 2014 including events, services, media appearances, and relentless campaigning – all of which will help to alleviate the stigma attached to men with eating disorders, reduce the isolation of sufferers, and help them through recovery. It is our ambition that Men Get Eating Disorders Too should be the first port of call for anyone wanting information, help, guidance, or expert advice. At the same time we want to enable sufferers at different stages of recovery to help each other, to create a community founded on mutual respect and support.
We know how to make it happen. We know that our vision can make a huge difference for the better. But we also know that it will take time and resources, two luxuries that we unfortunately don’t have in abundance. With whatever we are lucky enough to be given, we make sure we squeeze every last bit of value from it. Absolutely nothing is wasted in the running of this charity and every single penny goes towards making life easier for men and boys with lethal illnesses. We hope that you may think of us around Christmas, a difficult time for people with eating disorders, and follow our progress in 2014.
