This week, we say a fond farewell and the best of luck to our lovely Rosie, as she embarks on a new career following the completion of her degree.
Many of you will have spoken to Rosie, as she has worked with our charity since 2019. Initially helping out as a volunteer in the office, Rosie went on to join the staff team at the former weekly hub in Bath, offering face-to-face support to people affected by eating disorders. When the pandemic hit, and we moved our services online, Rosie continued providing support via telephone, video call and online chat one day per week, alongside her studies.
Rosie has been a much valued member of our team, and her compassion and unique perspective from her own lived experience has provided comfort, reassurance and vital support to many.
Rosie shares a few words about her time with ABC/Talk ED, and a message to all those she has supported:
Hi and goodbye to the lovely people of Talk ED
I’m sorry to be saying that I am leaving Talk ED to start a new full-time role. I just wanted to let all the people know that I have spoken to over the past few years how amazing you all are! You are brave, strong and you can do this! All your stories have meant too much to me, and even though I’m just a stranger on the telephone, it has been and honour and a privilege to have spoken to each and everyone of you.
Talk ED has been a charity that has meant a lot to me, and it has been such a pleasure to have been able to work with such a wonderful team. I will miss you all!!! Change can be scary, but I’m excited to be starting a new chapter in my life. Thank you all so much, both staff and callers! You all have a special place in my heart <3
Best wishes to you all,
You’ve been a joy to work with Rosie! We will miss you but wish you the very best of luck in your new role.
