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 Diabetes UK local groups from across the region.
Groups in your area
The groups in the Midlands region are all run voluntarily by people living with diabetes. Local groups can offer you local information and support, and the chance to meet other people who live with diabetes. Local groups can also offer you the opportunity to get involved in a range of activities from fundraising for diabetes research to influencing healthcare locally.
