Grandparents and their beautiful teen granddaughters outside on the farm.If you are a person who cares about someone who has anorexia, bulimia, compulsive eating or any other eating or weight difficulty, you are likely to experience various sorts of stress. You may feel unsure of how to help your loved one.

Oakwood Psychology Services, with funding from Stockport Council’s Health Innovations Fund, offers Cherish, a free monthly support group specifically for parents, family members, friends and carers of those with eating and weight distress.

The drop ins are free and are normally held from 6-7pm on the first Thursday of every month at our offices in Davenport.

Cherish is open to anybody, aged 16 or above, who has close, current contact with a person with an eating disorder or suffering from weight distress. The person you care for may or may not be an existing client at Oakwood or another treatment facility. There’s no need to book and to find out more about the group, ring 0161 456 6799.
