A Carers Group

A carers group offering skill-based support to those families and/or carers of someone suffering with an Eating disorder (Anorexia & Bulimia) meets every 2 weeks on a Tuesday evening between 6-8pm at:

The Beacon Unit,

Penrith Hospital,

Bridge Lane,


CA11 8HX.

It is widely acknowledged that the support and care given by families and carers is vitally important to recovery, and it is our aim to develop a service alongside carers that we hope will enable them to meet the challenges they face on a daily basis in this role.

Please invite any member of your family or close social network who is in a caring role with the person who is unwell, or you can raise awareness by passing this information on.

If you wish to speak to someone about the group please get in touch, you can do this by phone on 07766443261 or by email ANIS@cumbria.nhs.uk and a member of the group will contact you.

We look forward to meeting you.
