Welcome to the West Dorset Group

The West Dorset Diabetes UK Group is a volunteer group who actively carry out Diabetes awareness and education in the whole of Dorset.

The group aims to provide awareness and education events for all those living with Diabetes. We place great emphasis on raising public awareness throughout the area.

We produce a free newsletter containing information on events during the year. We hold group meetings where we have speakers on Diabetes related topics, Diabetes awareness days in local surgeries, a stand at all three Dorset agricultural shows and other Dorset events.

We endeavour to raise funds to purchase leaflets and other materials to support our efforts in educating those with Diabetes, those who care for someone with Diabetes and those who would like to know more about Diabetes.

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 as a member and/or a volunteer.
