Welcome to the St Helens and District Group

Our aim is to raise awareness of diabetes, and to provide information and support to people living with the condition, those affected by it in any way or at risk of developing it. 

We do this primarily through our informal group meetings, designed to offer people with up to date information on diabetes from our excellent specialist speakers.

The meetings also provide people with a friendly opportunity to discuss with others who understand, the many aspects of living with diabetes on a daily basis,
