Diabetes UK Northern & Yorkshire
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 a local support group - one of our Diabetes UK local groups.
Groups in your area
Local groups are all run by volunteers living with diabetes. These groups can offer you local information and support, and the chance to meet other people who live with diabetes. Local groups can also offer youa way to get involved in a range of activities - from fundraising for diabetes research to influencing healthcare locally. There are also family groups to support children with diabetes and their parents.
All local groups welcome new members.
