Join us as we go the extra mile to support hundreds of new service users every single month who struggle with their relationship with food, body and mood. By walking 10,000 steps every day in a month and help raise money to continue our life-saving support and services.

You can walk wherever you choose; a simple stroll outside in the sunshine or dance and jive around the house works just as well as swapping your daily drive for a wander to work.

The First Steps ED team has been working throughout the pandemic to ensure our services and support are available and accessible to all, providing care across the Midlands and beyond to ensure no one is feeling isolated or alone in their eating difficulties.

Unfortunately I didnt meet the criteria for a formal diagnosis so wasnt able to access any support for my eating difficulties. It wasnt until I saw a friend of mine share a post by @firststepsed that I realised there was a service that could help. Learning that what I was feeling was valid and did warrant some kind of support was an important step in my recovery. Without First Steps ED, Im not sure I would have ever received the support I needed for a better quality of life.

We cant do it without your support! So step up, and step with us and we continue to provide hope, choices and opportunities to lives affected by eating difficulties and disorders.
