Welcome to the North Down and Ards Group

It is our aim to provide help and support to people living with diabetes in the North Down & Ards area of Northern Ireland.

We do this primarily through group meetings, which are a pretty informal get together with a speaker on a topic of interest and a chance for you to to discuss diabetes and its effects with people going through the same issues.

Whether you have been diagnosed yourself or if you are simply an individual with a desire for knowledge and an inclination to take part, we welcome you to our group.

We also try to raise money to promote awareness of diabetes and generally contribute in any way we can - funds raise help with the running of our Group and the wider Diabetes UK services such as childrens camps and campaigning.
