Somerset and Wessex Eating Disorders (SWEDA)

  • Type of SEND provision:


Having an eating disorder, or supporting someone who has, can be a distressing and bewildering experience. Somerset and Wessex Eating Disorders Association (SWEDA) offers a range of services throughout Somerset and the surrounding area.

SWEDA services include:

  • Counselling
  • Monthly Self help Support Group
  • Training and Presentations for Health Professionals and GPs, and a College Support
  • Working with young people in secondary schools and four of the major colleges in the county

Special educational needs and disabilites information

All schools, childcare and SEND providers must make their policy and provision for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is usually published in the provider's SEN information report. This link takes you to where you can find this provider's SEN information report.

If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions about the provider's SEN provision, you should contact the provider directly.

We usually hold some information about a provider's policy and provision and you can find what we do hold here.
