Talking EDs (Eating Disorder Support Service Scotland) are pleased to say that we have some volunteering vacancies available with the non-profit, voluntary arm of our business, the Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group. Please see the attached Information Sheet which offers details about what the Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group is.

Before we open up membership of the Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group to the public, we are looking to assemble a small group of volunteers who will be part of the Planning Group Committee. This is a great opportunity to volunteer 2-3 hours per month while meeting new people, developing new skills and knowledge and gaining experience in the eating disorder field and in planning and organising meetings and events.

If you are interested in becoming a Committee Member on the Planning Group, please get in touch for a  Role Description and Application Form. We will then organise an informal chat with those who would like to be on the Committee. References will only be contacted if you have been offered the role and have accepted it.

As this is a Committe Role, we do have to complete applications and have informal chats following application to ensure we secure volunteers who are the right fit for the role.

AFFILIATES: If you are an affiliate working for any my 3 practices, please just send me a note of interest in the role - we don't have to do applications and we will just organise a quick chat.

Closing date for applications: Friday 10th September 2021, 5pm
Informal interviews: 1-2 weeks following the closing date

Due to COVID-19, interview will currently take place online, via Zoom.

Although we are based in Scotland, we welcome anyone in the UK to apply for this committee role as you can join our meetings online (if some of us meet in person).

If selected, the induction will be online. We are looking to assemble a committee sooner than later so we can re-launch the networking (with it's new name) and start recruiting members and hosting meetings/events.  to start the role soon after the interviews.

If you are still interested  in this role, please have a read of the attached Role Description and send the completed Application Form and Personal Statement to this email address by the closing date

If you have any questions, need any more information or would like to apply, please feel free to get in touch. Similarly, if you know of anyone who might be interested in  applying as a Committee Member or joining as a Registered Member in the future, they are very welcome to get in touch with us.

Don't apologise for ....

Don't apologise for .... We work with so many clients (past and present) who always feel they need to apologise and say sorry. Apologising for saying how they feel; apologising for not meeting other people's expectations; saying sorry for putting their own needs first sometimes; apologising for not having a good day; apologising for taking up space. We don't need to say sorry for any of these things. Each and everyone of us is entitled to express our thoughts and feelings and say what we need and wan t. Each of us us entitled to assert ourselves and live our lives according to our own values, interests and expecations - not someone else's. Each one of us is entitled to and permitted to take up space and be present in this world. You don't need to say sorry for doing any of that.  You matter. You are important. You CAN take up space, because it's your right to do so. Take care, look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend. Best wishes
