EDFA's mission is to facilitate and advocate for families and carers to ensure they are supported and, equipped and acknowledged as a central part of optimising the recovery process for the person with the eating disorder.
A lack of active engagement of families and carers in clinical care of a person with an eating disorder provides an environment where eating disorders are more likely to thrive and persist.
EDFA knows families and carers welcome a clear mandate and strategies to enable them to play a key role in the care team.
EDFA is committed to providing opportunities for clinicians to learn from models of treatment which draw on the resources families bring to the recovery journey.
