Diabetes Support & Information

When Type 1 Diabetes comes crashing into your home, it takes your whole family. It doesn’t matter if you are the parent of a child newly diagnosed or an adult diagnosed. The whole family is affected.

And the amount of information you need to process can be so overwhelming that you can’t take it all in at once. You take in as much as you can at the time.

So what do you do when you have a question for something you are doing right now? Where do you find that particular answer?

The answer is that there are lots of places and lots of people who have lots and lots of information about living with type 1 diabetes and not enough time to go through all of it.

Our aim with this set of webpages is to try to streamline and organise the best resources available in a way that you can find what you are looking for easily.


Diabetes Support, Information and Educations comes from many sources.

I have divided it into four sections.

Medical Support which would include the diabetes education from your diabetes team at your clinic.

Diabetes Support Groups Online and Offline
