What we are fundraising for:
All money raised will go towards introducing The Succeed Body Image Programme to 600 students in the first year at 3 new universities.
The Succeed Body Image Programme is the UK’s most evidence-based eating disorder prevention programme designed to help women at university establish and maintain a positive and healthy body image.
What’s it for?
Negative body image is increasingly recognised as an issue that affects large numbers of men and women in the UK.
A study by The Succeed Foundation and The Centre for Appearance Research in 2011, showed that a massive 93% of UK University women have negative thoughts about their appearance.
The average age at which girls start dieting is now 8 years old.
The purpose of The Succeed Body Image Programme is to help university aged women establish and maintain a positive body image.
Highly motivated student ‘Peer Leaders’ are trained to deliver the programme to their fellow students. Verbal, written and behavioural exercises critique the unrealistic, ultra-thin-ideal standard of female beauty and encourage healthy communication skills.
A total of 6 universities are now actively running the programme, and with the funds from this event, we aim to expand further.
We look forward to seeing you there!
