Diabetes UK is the leading UK charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns alongside people with or at risk of diabetes. Our work in communities across the UK would not be possible without the fantastic support of our local groups which are an integral part of the organisation.
By setting up a local group you will be part of our network across the UK.
