Diabetes Peer Support


Have you recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes?

Or are you finding it difficult to live well with Type 2 diabetes?

 We can provide you with one-to-one support from someone who is also living with Type 2 diabetes.

You can meet with this person regularly, speak to them in confidence & get practical tips & ideas, based on personal experiences, about managing your health.

Talking to someone who has been through what you are experiencing can have huge benefits in helping you manage your condition. If you would like to know more about this service then please ring Brigstowe on 0117 955 038 or diabetes@brigstowe.org
