Amongst other things, we provide details of local NHS Services for people with diabetes and of exercise available locally, shown for each borough separately, together with details of Group Education Courses.  The site is also home to our Triborough Diabetes Mentors and Champions and a Professionals page contains evaluations of our programs.

If you have diabetes and need more information, or simply want to share your experiences with those in a similar situation, you should come along to one of our meetings.  The Groups comprise people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, both newly diagnosed and those with many years experience, together with partners, other family members, friends and carers. Membership is drawn from the surrounding areas. Anyone will be made most welcome.
