Organisation Name
Bristol Diabetes Support Network

The Network consists of five diabetes support groups based in the centre of Bristol, the East, West and South of the city. The group aims to support those living with diabetes and their carers and to be a vehicle for communication between people with diabetes and clinicians and health professionals.

The groups are run by a small number of volunteers and we would welcome any support, no matter how little. Please contact us if you can offer any ideas or time in order to develop the group.

The group aims to:
-Offer a place where people with diabetes and their families can meet to gain support and share experiences
-Provide information and increase understanding about living with diabetes to enable those with diabetes to enjoy healthy lives
-Work closely with local agencies who support those living with diabetes
-Work to influence those who make decisions about diabetes care and funding to ensure effective care in the area
-Raise funds in order to support the group and to contribute to research into diabetes.
