Beat UoB is a campaigning and fundraising society for Beat - the UK's largest eating disorder charity.
It is Beat's vision to end the war and suffering caused by eating disorders. Beat give help to those who suffer with eating disorders, they provide support for those who know someone with an eating disorder and they resource the most accurate and effective information possible regarding eating disorders, so that we can challenge and break down the stigmas associated with these devastating mental illnesses.
Here at Beat UoB, we are doing everything we can on campus to help Beat's vision become a reality. Whether this be through holding fundraising events (such as bake sales and yoga classes), carrying out Beat's campaigns here at UoB (such as 'Eating Disorders Awareness Week' in February and 'Walk and Talk in Support of Beat') or even through our socials (pub quizzes, bowling, movie nights and so many more!).
We want to get people talking about eating disorders - the more we talk, the less eating disorders win.
If you feel passionate about ending the war against eating disorders, if you want to get some volunteering experience or even if you just want to have some fun in a society, we would love to have you as a part of Beat UoB!
(please note, as of February 2018 group is currently rebranding from B-Eat to Beat (no hyphen), so short-term there may be some name inconsistencies, e.g the Facebook Page name is still B-Eat, we are working on having this changed!)
