Welcome to the Forest of Dean Group

Diabetes UK, the charity for people with diabetes, has a network of over 300 groups, throughout the UK. The Forest of Dean Group is one of these groups and we aim to support people throughout the area.

We welcome everyone affected by diabetes, whether newly diagnosed or longer term, along with carers and friends. The group aims to provide support, help, education and information for people living with diabetes. There is always the opportunity to talk to other members of the group, to ask questions and share experiences.

We do this primarily through group meetings, designed with the express purpose of providing individuals with a safe, social forum to discuss diabetes and its effects.

When and where we can, we also try to raise money to promote awareness of diabetes and generally contribute in any way we can.

Whether you have been diagnosed yourself or if you are simply an individual with a desire for knowledge and an inclination to take part, we welcome you to our group.
