Delivery Methods

Online E-learning

Peer Support and Online Development (POD) for carers is a space designed for people who are supporting someone else with an eating disorder, featuring:

- e-learning
- workshops
- forums
- expert chat

With POD's catalogue of free online e-learning modules you can learn more about eating disorders and how to be an effective carer.

Our instructor-led workshop are accessible through POD:

- Developing Dolphins
- Raising Resilience
- Harnessing Hope
- Coping with Celebrations

When the sessions are over you'll have the chance to continue conversations started in your group in a dedicated workspace.

You’re not alone in supporting a loved one with an eating disorder. With POD, you can connect with others who have the same experiences and worries as you. Through our peer support forums, you’ll be able to discuss what you’re learning, and share information, resources and ideas with other carers.

Each week, you’ll also be able to access drop-in spaces to meet with Beat’s Clinical Associate Trainers, who’ll help you consolidate everything you’ve learned.
