Scunthorpe Diabetes UK Group

Our group is part of a national charity – Diabetes UK, which is the leading name of the British Diabetic Association and registered as a charity in England & Wales ( No. 215199). Being part of a network of over 300 groups across the UK we are aimed to care for, connect with and campaign alongside people with or at risk of diabetes, including their relatives and carers.

In particular:

 

Arrange tea/coffee social events, where members can swap ideas on living with diabetes.

Raise awareness of diabetes in the local community. 

Organise local meetings where speakers with expert knowledge provide relevant information.

Raise funds to support local diabetes services, research & development projects initiated/supported by Diabetes UK. 

 

We provide care and support at our group meetings, by providing opportunities for people to share their experiences and organising educational talks. We have a varied programme throughout the year which can involve fundraising events such as sponsored walks through to working with GP surgeries in the area to improve services for everyone with diabetes. There is no cost to attend meetings, and no membership fee - we fundraise to cover running costs.
