Our New Logo is Here

We have been working hard over the past few months trying to finalise our new logo and we are delighted to now launch our finished product!!!

We wanted something that would be fitting to represent us, our aims, our objectives and the work that we do. We wanted something that would symbolise recovery from an eating disorder. We wanted something that would symbolise hope. We wanted something that, when looked upon by someone with lived experience, of the torture and torment of living with an eating disorder, it would elicit understanding and meaning and instill hope and belief.
