Set up a Support Group

The purpose of a support group is to bring together people who are living with diabetes, their families, their carers, health professionals working within the diabetes community, and members of the broader community who have an interest in diabetes.


Support groups can be as small as a group of two or three people who meet or talk regularly by phone or the internet to provide support to one another; or a group may have more than one hundred members who come together to hear information from guest speakers and health professionals, share in social outings and run special events.


Regardless of the size of the support group the objective is the same; to support people living with diabetes.


If you are interested in setting up a support group, please contact or phone our call centre on 1800 177 055
