Fixers: Diabulimia Support.

Today's post is a brief one, but I'm so excited to be sharing this here.

Friends of mine, Lucy, and Alice, have been working on a project with Fixers to get better support for people with Diabulimia. 

Taken directly from the website, "Fixers are young people using their past to fix the future. They are motivated by personal experience to make positive change for themselves and those around them. Real people, real stories, real change."

"To date, more than 12,700 Fixers from Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland have started - and are continuing - over 1,480 unique projects and over 535 Fixers projects have been showcased ITV and UTV regional news programmes across the country, providing more than 35 hours of peak-time exposure to their projects."

With Fixers, the pair have created a booklet for health care professionals to raise awareness of Diabulimia and tell their personal stories. 

To read more, and see the booklet they have produced, click here. Their project will also be receiving some air-time, date and time to follow as I can't remember!

I'm so super-duper proud!
