Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Burnley, Lancashire
Campaign: To help people identify eating disorders in others

I have struggled with anorexia in the past. It started after I began to diet and it turned into an obsession.

Being in the grip of the illness, I felt like there was no way out.

What I weighed that morning would change my mood for the rest of the day.

So many people go through it, but it’s not always talked about, which is why we want to make people more aware.


My team and I are working with Fixers to encourage others to intervene if they feel someone’s diet has become a disorder.

Hopefully, spotting the signs early will enable others to get the help they need.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Abigail Senior Alice Butterfield
Bethany Cunliffe Bethany Mottram
Blal Khan Chloe Craig
Darryl Pilling David Bevis
Ebony Dawe Hayley Targett
Katy Ball Lewis Malatesta
Natalie Fenn Saira Baksh
Sarah Gibson Sophia Shirani
Yash Tripathi
