The Butterfly Foundation is a national organisation providing information and support for people with eating disorders. A phone line offers confidential counselling, as well as information on local support organisations across the country. Support is also available by email and one-on-one web chats.
The website contains useful factsheets about body image, anorexia and bulimia, and tips for recovery. The Butterfly Foundation’s Twitter (@BFoundation) and Facebook sites are popular sources of information. Some financial relief is offered for those unable to afford treatment.
