About

Established in 1993 and now with charitable status, the Scottish Eating Disorder Interest Group continues to be a unique supportive forum that integrates professionals, carers, those in recovery and any other interested member of the public (both young and older).

When it was founded in 1993, SEDIG acted as a bridge across the regions in Scotland which were starved of resources and specialist services. In fact there were no official inpatient or speciality services at the time it was founded! And so SEDIG was a valuable resource in connecting communities and professionals.

Support for sufferers, carers and professionals

affected by eating disorders in Scotland

The Scottish Eating Disorder Interest Group is here to help people across Scotland find the support, care and understanding they need to deal with eating disorders, whether they are affecting them directly, a family member or someone you care for.

We help the whole community, including families, professionals, carers and sufferers themselves get the information and access to support and treatment they need.
