EMPOWER - Type 2

EMPOWER is an award winning face to face, diabetes education group course that supports people to better manage their type 2 diabetes and reduce the risk of long term health complications.

It’s free, paid for by the NHS and you’ll learn all you need to know in only four hours!

In an enjoyable and informative way, we will discuss how to make small, achievable changes to the food you eat and your everyday life so that you can live well with diabetes.


Why should I attend EMPOWER?

Attending a diabetes education course is a very important part of learning the basics of how to manage your type 2 diabetes and live a healthier life.

Our team of specialist educators will help you understand:

What diabetes is and how it can affect you
Simple ways to manage your diabetes more effectively
The complications diabetes can cause
How to improve you blood sugar levels

EMPOWER is designed to maximise your knowledge alongside other people living with type 2 diabetes.  Everyone will take away a helpful information pack and workbook which you can refer to in the future.

Refreshments are provided and all we ask you to bring is yourself (and a carer if you would like them to learn about diabetes too).

Sessions are provided at a variety of sports venues across south London – just pick a venue and a time to suit you.

“I would like to say what a fantastic thing these meetings are. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago and believed that I didn’t have a clue what it meant or how I managed it until today”
