Mission Statement

S.E.E.D. is dedicated to raising awareness about eating disorders in Lancashire by providing information resources and education, training and support for everyone affected by eating disorders and/or working with eating disorders

We acknowledge that the symptoms of eating disorders are an expression of deeper emotional need. We believe that people suffering with an eating disorder can get better; that there is help available and this help should be freely accessible.

Our logo represents our belief that with guidance and encouragement an individual can grow, develop and flourish.

Statement of Faith
We Believe:

  • There is one God, who exists forever in Three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit 
  • That Jesus Christ is our personal saviour. He had a virgin birth, led a sinless life, performed many miracles and died on our behalf. He was resurrected and ascended to his Father and will come again.
  • In the healing power and ministry of the Holy Spirit.
  • That the Bible is the infallible, authoritative Word of God
  • That man was created in God's image but that through sin we need to receive God's mercy through the redemptive power of Jesus.
  • Our salvation comes through repentance towards God and faith in Jesus. That the Church is the manifestation in spiritual unity of all believers in Jesus.

SEED is a non-denominational organisation and does not restrict access of its services to anyone of a particular faith group. All committee members are required to endorse our statement of faith along with group leaders. Our steering group which informs our committee and all other volunteers are not required to endorse our statement of faith but are asked to be sympathetic and understanding of the Christian ethos of the organisation. SEED also endorses the statement of faith of Preston Evangelical Network, Anorexia and Bulimia Care and the Association of Christian Counsellors (copies available on request).
