All Group Meetings

All face to face group meetings are SUSPENDED  until further notice. This could be the case until 2022 so all Group meetings will be held via zoom until further notice, on the dates already scheduled for next year. Our next meeting is in the 14th December from 7-9pm 

Anyone wishing to join us must first register with Alison via the group e mail. This is to ensure that we can prevent undesirables from gatecrashing. Log in details of the meeting will be sent out nearer the time. If anyone needs help joining Zoom please let Alison know and she will be able to help get you started.

In the Communty 

If anyone feels they need to talk to someone face to face there is the possibility of a 40 minute Zoom session. This is available to everyone, so just get in touch. Alison is also keeping in touch with Dennis Cooper’s widow Jill to make sure she is ok in the current circumstances. 

Working with Diabetes UK

Through our group work visiting prisons, Alison has been asked to work with Diabetes UK in the creation of a national audit for care in prisons and secure units, to add to the audits already in existence for diabetes care including foot care and inpatient care, among others. We are aware from our prisons visits that there are issues with the care inmates with diabetes receive whilst inside.  Alison is also working with Diabetes UK on the Live Well Move More project aimed at getting people in the target groups to become more active and healthier. Both projects are planned to run over the next two years.
