UK charity chooses Birchwood Park for North West base

A UK eating disorder charity has become the latest occupant at Birchwood Park after searching for a new location in the North West.

Beat will move its helpline service from its Norwich head office to the park’s 401 Faraday Street building as it expands its national presence.

The charity provides services including a phone and email helpline for people with eating disorders and their families and friends, as well as online support groups, awareness training in schools and workplaces and a HelpFinder service to assist those who are looking for treatments in their area.

Announcing the new site Caroline Price, director of services at Beat, says: “Birchwood Park’s central location was the deciding factor for us when looking for new office space. Here we are in prime position to attract highly skilled staff and potential volunteers from the surrounding area and nearby cities, largely thanks to the park’s excellent transport links.”

Martin O’Rourke, commercial director at Warrington-based Birchwood Park, which is managed by Patrizia UK, adds: “We are delighted that Beat has chosen to join our community. We look forward to seeing [the charity] go from strength to strength here.”
