Welcome to the homepage of DUKllands, the Diabetes UK Lewisham, Lambeth & Southwark Family Support Group for young people & families living with Type 1 Diabetes, in South East London and beyond.
Our aims are:
”When we had the Type 1 bomb drop on our little boy and family we were nowhere near in a place to reach out and speak to anyone else about it. However, after a year of getting our heads round it, we dipped our toe in and we are SO glad we did.
The DUKllands group has brought us a lot of joy and hope and support and very valuable information. It is hard to put into words how comforting it is being in a group of people who all know how life REALLY is dealing with your precious child being injected/having hypos/hypers/illness - the outside world always says 'oh, diabetes, that's quite easy to manage isn't it?' - HA!”
