Diabetes UK NI - Local Groups

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 supporter groups.

Groups in your area

The supporter groups in Northern Ireland are all run voluntarily by people living with diabetes. Supporter groups can offer you local information and support, and the chance to meet other people who live with diabetes. The groups can also offer you the opportunity to get involved in a range of activities from fundraising for diabetes research to influencing healthcare locally.

All groups welcome new members - if you'd like more information about any of the groups please email nivolunteering@diabetes.org.uk. We also have family support groups, which cater for children with diabetes and their parents.
