This looks as though it could be really helpful for some people, and it is free!! Thanks hopeful_mum I have pasted a link in the events page too so it will stay at the top.

Thank you so much for your support FoodSupport_AUS.  It is free but we will accept donations on the day to help us cover costs if anyone feels generous. Our usual 2hour support group session is a voluntary contribution of £2.50. This workshop is 4hours with light lunch. We didn't want to prevent someone from attending who could benefit just because of cost. Our group fundraises to help make such work possible. Thank you.

I love the concept of paying what you can afford. People are often surprisingly generous, and it means that cost does not become a barrier.  Keep up the great work.

I wanted to just take this opportunity to thank you FoodSupport_AUS. I attribute this thread (https://www.aroundthedinnertable.org/post/my-d-weightheight-charts-advise-please-on-target-weight-7410450?pid=1287245039) to saving my d life and you were amongst many of the brilliant names who offered me support when I so desperately needed it. I strongly believe if I didn't have ATDT advising me to up her food intake and weight we would still be stuck in the grips of AN. So thank you and all the amazing contributors of ATDT!
