Beat has been awarded more than £40,000 to develop a new website.
Amy’s brother Alex Winehouse said: “It is vital, in the world we live in today, that everything is done to highlight the danger eating disorders can wreak upon the human body. Too often, the easiest option, to turn away and act like nothing is happening , is taken, and it is time this stops. We hope that, by working alongside Beat, discussions about bulimia and anorexia can now take place, and that people’s fears of this subject are allayed.”
The website will ensure both sufferers and their families can use message boards, take part in live chats and online support groups and search support services in their local area using the HelpFinder online directory.
