We welcome everyone affected by diabetes, whether newly diagnosed or longer term, along with carers, friends and visitors. There is always the opportunity to talk to other members of the group, ask questions and share experiences.
We have a number of families who have a child with diabetes - we run events through the year, allowing them to meet up - for the children it is important for them to see that they are not alone and it gives them a real opportunity to not only share their experiences, but to play and have fun; for the parents too, it is a time to meet up, share and learn from each other and develop friendships.
Meetings are held in the Priestley Room at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds City Centre (for directions, please click here) , 7.00 pm start on the first Monday of each month - if this happens to be a Bank Holiday, we usually hold the meeting on the second Monday of that month.
Our next meeting will be on Mon 11th May when we will be welcoming Claire Vick from the Community Diabetes Team.
