Name: Kathryn Manners & Sophie Skelding
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2012
Location: Somerset
Campaign: Eating disorder help

Us and our friends have all had different experiences with eating disorders – some personally, some through people we know.

 

In any case, eating disorders are particularly hard to deal with and can be triggered by a number of things.

 

Stress is a big factor in developing the disorders, and unfortunately you often experience more stress when battling against it. We want to show that you can get help and can overcome this.

 

As a group, we are creating an interactive website which gives not just those who are suffering information, but help, advice, and support to people around them.

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

 

Caitlin Bevan Elizabeth Bradley
Elizabeth Clarke Harry Bishop
Heather Cooke Helen Pearce

Jonathon Bolland Laura Paterson
Libby Norris Sam Hill
