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 Diabetes Scotland local group.
The local groups in Scotland are all run by volunteers who are living with diabetes. Offering information, support and the chance to meet other people who live with diabetes. Local groups can also provide opportunity to get involved in a range of activities from fundraising for diabetes research to influencing healthcare locally.
All groups welcome new members. We also have community groups that meet regularly and family groups, which support children with diabetes and their parents.
