Diabetes Lewisham

Community Waves is delivering a programme to establish Diabetes Support Groups across the borough.

Diabetes Peer Support Groups

Do you have diabetes and want support within your community? We have set up a diabetes peer support group in each local neighbourhood, in the London Borough of Lewisham.

Come along and talk with others who may be experiencing the same issues as you. Our groups look to provide support and offer advice around exercise, nutrition, motivation and mental wellbeing.

For general information, please contact Stephanie Wood on 020 8315 1906 or email stephanie@communitywaves.co.uk
