Local Support in the North of England


Looking for some support?

Sometimes we all need to talk things over, and being able to speak to someone else could mean the difference between a good day and a really tough one.

If you would like to access further support, please contact the North of England team to find out more about what support we have available in your area. 

Email or call us on 01925 653 281. 

You can also contact our Helpline, to get specialist information and advice on all aspects of living with diabetes.


Local Groups

Adjusting to the knowledge that you or a member of your family has diabetes takes time and it's 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.

Groups in your area

The local groups in the North of England 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.

All groups welcome new members – if you'd like more information about any of the groups please email We also have family groups, which cater for children with diabetes and their parents.
