First Steps Derbyshire has won a major national healthcare award in recognition of its work to support young people and adults with eating disorders and its relationship with health professionals across the east midlands.

First Steps in Agard Street was founded in 2004 by CEO, Cathy Cleary who as a teenager suffered with an eating disorder and recognised that through her own experiences and recovery, that other sufferers and their families needed support that was not always available from NHS and community services. 

The charity has won the Supported Self Care category sponsored by NHS England Integrated Personalised Care a joint national programme with the Local Government Association at this year’s HSJ Awards which are regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the health care service in England.

The award was in recognition of First Steps Eating Disorders online befriending service which the judges said: ‘is a wonderful example of a truly person centred service that compliments local NHS services and that demonstrably transforms people’s lives. An example we can all learn from’.
The online befriending service typically involves 40 trained volunteers – many of whom have personal experience of eating disorders and a positive recovery – who provide online practical support for around 50 local people at any one time.
