Our courses

Diabetes support sessions

We believe that people with diabetes have the right to take control of their care.

We have designed our programmes to support you in developing skills, knowledge and confidence so that you can take responsibility for decisions about managing your condition and live a healthy life.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, which provides evidence-based advice to the NHS, recommends that everyone with diabetes is offered access to education sessions.

We hope that having completed our free courses you will be able to make changes to your lifestyle with the on-going support of your practice nurse or GP at your own surgery.

Please also look at the resources page for further help around managing your Type 2 diabetes.

We provide two education sessions and run six courses each month across Oxfordshire and via Microsoft Teams:

  • Diabetes2gether for people newly diagnosed of who have never been on one of our courses.
  • Diabetes4ward for people who have had the condition for longer or have more complex needs. 

Both cater for up to 20 people and are facilitated by specially trained diabetes educators. Diabetes2gether and Diabetes4ward sessions last 3.5 hours.

These courses have now been accredited until 2024 by Quality Institute for Self Management Education & Training (QISMET).

The atmosphere is relaxed and discussion is encouraged for those who would like to join in. You are welcome to bring along a friend or relative for support.
