We are supporting Diabetes Week 2017
Bluebird Care Stroud & Cirencester is supporting Diabetes UK annual campaign Diabetes Week, which this year runs from Sunday 11th June through to Saturday 17th June 2017.Diabetes UK is the largest UK charity for diabetes and over the last 10 years they have invested nearly £60 million into their research. There are 4.5 million people living with diabetes across the UK and another 11.9 million people with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes UK support individuals in managing their diabetes with everyday life through support groups, events or even just having someone to talk to.
The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Know Diabetes. Fight Diabetes.’
Knowledge can be very powerful in transforming lives, Diabetes UK are asking people to share their experiences on how they learnt about diabetes and how they fight the condition, inspiring others to do the same.
Diabetes UK are fighting for change and by increasing understanding it will help remove the stigma around diabetes. Bluebird Care Stroud & Cirencester hope that by supporting Diabetes Week across the Stroud District, we can help develop people’s knowledge of the condition and share advice on fighting diabetes.
