Who we are

Sugarbuddies is a peer-to-peer support group for people aged 18+ who have been newly diagnosed (or diagnosed within the last year) with diabetes. Our aim is to offer you friendly and understanding support, from people who know exactly how you are feeling.

We are here to listen, not to tell, and to hopefully have some fun along the way. We can teach you all you need to know about your diagnosis and answer the burning questions you may have through our lay education programme.

So if you need a buddy; someone to lessen the load, or just someone to laugh with, then make it a Sugarbuddy!

There are a number of people involved in Sugarbuddies. Not only are there the buddies themselves, but there are project mentors and trainers too. Using the drop down menu above, you can view details of everyone involved.
