The Winchester and Eastleigh Diabetes UK Support Group was launched in Winchester in May and we will have our launch in Eastleigh on 12th September.
We have a new committee and we all look forward to working with the local communittees in Winchester, Eastleigh, Chandler's Ford and surrounding villages.
We are people with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes who are interested in obtaining information and learning about and controlling our condition, and in helping anyone else that wishes to do the same.
Our goal is to provide support and educate people living with diabetes, as well as their family, friends and anyone else who is interested in knowing more about diabetes.
We encourage everyone to attend our group meetings where we will create a welcoming and social environment for people to discuss diabetes and its effects.
Support and companionship are some of the simplest yet most important aspects of living with diabetes.
We invite all constructive ideas to help us meet the aim of living in a community where noone is adversely affected by diabetes or the risk of diabetes.
