Diabetes UK – Kingston Branch

Information and Support Group in Kingston-upon-Thames

Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes.

They provide information, help and peer support, so people with diabetes can manage their condition effectively. They are one of the largest funders of diabetes research in the UK.

Currently, there are over 8000 people in the Royal Borough of Kingston diagnosed as having a diabetic condition and national indicators are that there must be almost a further 2,000 who are unaware and undiagnosed.

The Kingston Information & Support Group have a full programme of events scheduled for you to get involved in, covering all ages, as well as Type 1 or Type 2 conditions.

The group is not only for those with a diabetic condition but also for family, friends and carers, as well as others who may have worries or concerns about acquiring the condition. They are here for you.

How is their group run?

The Kingston branch of Diabetes UK enjoys the support and encouragement of Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Kingston Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and both the national and regional office of Diabetes UK.

It is recommended that members of the local group become both members of the Foundation Trust as well as Diabetes UK.

Kingston is one of the newest Groups associated to Diabetes UK. They formed in October 2015, and have made great progress and helped a lot of people since that time. Chairman is Richard Allen, Secretary is Anne Lewis-Lloyd and Treasurer is David Cruden.

Ideas on how the group can progress, as well as raise much-needed funds for additional diabetes research, are very welcome.

They look forward to having you join them. Perhaps you could even take part and shape the future of the group. Please feel free to get in touch with them by email at:
