Launch of Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group and Committee Members Wanted

Launch of Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group and Committee Members Wanted 
 
Looking forward to re-launching Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group in a few months. This will form part of our services here at Talking EDs.
We launched a similar eating disorders interest group back in 2011 (and it lasted until 2015). Then it was called EDSIGS. However, we are re-launching it again soon.

What is Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group?
* It will be a membership group (membership free for the first few years while we re-establish it) for those with a professional interest in eating disorders (therapists, researchers, support workers, volunteers etc. - please note it's not a group for those currently experiencing an eating disorder - it's not a support group)
* It will be a discussion and special interest group for professionals (i.e. those working in or interested in eating disorders in a paid or voluntary capacity) who wish to meet and share information, have discussion groups, attend networking events, attend peer supervision/support, and mybe set up workshops etc. too.
* Learn more about eating disorders, share experiences, ideas or develop your interest in eating disorders.
* Networking with other professionals and those working/interested in EDs in a paid or voluntary capacity.

WANT TO BE PART OF THE PLANNING COMMITTEE?
While this will be part of our practice, this networking group will be a voluntary project - we don't make money from it and any small charges for membership or events/meetings are to help cover costs of running group. So we will be giving up free time to run the group and we are also looking for a couple of volunteers to form a Planning Committee to help run the group. This will be voluntary ( a few hours per month) but excellent experience. 
If you are interested in being part of the Planning Committee, please watch this space - we will start advertising soon.
Once we have a small Planning Committee in place, we can start planning the launch of Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group and anyone who wished to become a Registered Member can apply. We hope to plan a first event for the summer. 
Talking EDs (Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Support Service) started in 2010 and we have provided various therapeutic, counselling, support, consultative, educative and awareness and campaigning services since then. We hope the launch of this professional networking and interest group is a valuable addition to what we offer.
