Support for carers

The team at Cotswold House recognise that support from friends and family is crucial in promoting recovery or managing symptoms.

Caring for someone with an eating disorder can be stressful and can impact the carers’ mental or physical health, work or family life.  Carers are offered a carers assessment or to see the Family Therapist. This can help both the individual and family develop new ways of interacting that optimise the chance of recovery or stability.

A monthly support group is held at Cotswold House at the Warneford Hospital, Oxford, on the first Saturday of each month (11.00- 12:30).  Families meet together and discuss their experiences or hear speakers.  The programme is arranged to meet the needs of the people attending.  Recent speakers have included a consultant and a recovered service user.

We will be running several skills based workshops, aimed at those supporting and living with somebody with an eating disorder.   For further information or to reserve a place, please contact the office manager on 01865 902534
