Welcome to the Canterbury and Coastal Group

The Canterbury and Coastal  Diabetes UK Group covers Canterbury, Faversham, Herne Bay, Whitstable and surrounding areas.

We seek to serve local people with diabetes and their carers through peer support, education and social contact.  We aim to raise awareness of the importance of early diagnosis and specific needs of people with diabetes and form a liaison with the local medical practitioners, as well as raising funds for the benefit of local people with diabetes, including children, and for pioneering research into care, cure and prevention for all types of diabetes. 

This website is designed to promote the group and we welcome all interested to attend our group meetings or to contact us for any information which you cannot find on the site.
