Our Diabetes groups are a network of support groups for people over 60, living with type 1 or type 2 Diabetes and their carers or loved ones.

The groups are community assets of Integrated Care Across Northamptonshire (ICAN) which aims to help people with long term conditions choose well, live well and stay well.

We currently have groups across Northamptonshire in Kettering, Wellingborough and Corby.

Kettering Diabetes Group meets on the first Tuesday of the month, 10am to 1pm at The Corn Market Hall, London Road, Kettering NN15 7QA.

Wellingborough Diabetes Group meets on the last Tuesday of the month, 10.30am to 1.30pm at Northamptonshire Carers, Midland Road, Wellingborough NN8 1LU

Each monthly meeting has expert advice and guidance from an NHFT Diabetes Multidisciplinary Team, an exercise session, and a healthy vegetarian lunch. We also have regular education and information sessions from guest speakers and wellbeing activities.

Here is what people have to say about our Diabetes Groups:

"I enjoy the group as the meetings are informative, and I have taken ideas away and implemented them. The exercise sessions have inspired me to do more exercise. Talking with the other members of the group makes you realise you are not alone, others share your issues and some share how they have resolved them. The organisers are really friendly and forward on information if an answer cannot be found during the meetings. Would recommend these to anyone no matter where they are on their diabetes journey. Thank you to all involved"

"Both presentations today were excellent, in particular the lady who presented the talk describing the physiology of diabetes. Also Christian on trips and falls, very good about telephones. The lady who did the exercise, the pace of each exercise was just right for me. Same again please"

"Everybody is friendly and there are helpful talks and presentations."

"Useful information, interesting to hear other people’s experiences so feel less isolated"

"Very useful. Although there is a lot of information available online it is good to be able to discuss things face to face."

"Although I have been diabetic for nearly 30 years good to have up to date information."

"Excellent information already given as well as support."

"Cannot praise the group enough!!!"
