Adjusting to the knowledge that you or a member of your family has diabetes takes time and it is often helpful to meet other people who live with diabetes and have been through a similar situation. They can offer understanding, help and support at an important time. A good way of finding this help is to join one of our local Diabetes UK groups.
The groups in the London region are all run voluntarily by people living with diabetes. Groups can offer you local information and support, and the chance to meet other people who live with diabetes. Diabetes UK groups can also offer you the opportunity to get involved in a range of activities, from fundraising for diabetes research to influencing healthcare locally.
All groups welcome new members. Our local groups include family support groups, which cater for children with diabetes and their parents.
