Welcome to the Wakefield Group

It is our aim to provide help and support to people living with diabetes in the Wakefield/Castleford/Pontefract area.

We do this primarily through group meetings, designed with the express purpose of providing individuals with a safe, social forum to discuss diabetes and its effects. We regularly invite local healthcare professionals to speak to the group on topics of interest. 

Whether you have been diagnosed yourself or if you are simply an individual with a desire for knowledge and an inclination to take part, we welcome you to our group.

We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month (excluding August) 19:00 - 20:30 at :

West Wakefield Methodist Church

Thornes Lane (Off Horbury Road)
