S.E.E.D. is a Lancashire Charity based in Preston affiliated with B-eat and Anorexia and Bulimia Care.(ABC)

S.E.E.D. was formed in 2007 by a small group of volunteers.

S.E.E.D. provides a variety of services but is not a substitute for medical care.

S.E.E.D. is a registered charity and is reliant on volunteer time/effort, donations and small grants to deliver it’s aims.


is an organisation based around Christian values. We are a volunteer led charity, consisting of those who have a passion for eating disorders and helping others. Some of our volunteers have recovered from eating disorders themselves or have previously been carers for those with an eating disorder.

We strongly believe that people suffering with an eating disorder can get better, and that full recovery is possible.

Our services provide opportunities for those in need to come and speak to our experienced and passionate volunteers in a friendly, relaxed and confidential atmosphere, providing them with any information, resources or support that they require.

We acknowledge that the symptoms of eating disorders are an expression of a deeper emotional need, and we believe that there is help available and this help should be freely accessible. S.E.E.D. is self help focused and aims to foster healthy lifestyles towards achieving independence and improved quality of life.
