What we do

Advocacy
One of the most important roles of the Global Diabetes Initiative is to speak up for all diabetic
migrants in the UK, lobbying for better treatment and the availability of crucial
pharmaceuticals. Decision-makers in the national health-care system must acknowledge that
the country is experiencing a diabetes pandemic and that immediate action is required to care
for individuals affected. Diabetes can be managed, and with the right education and
motivation, a diabetic can live a full, healthy, and long life. Global Diabetes Initiatives seeks to
help at every stage of the process.


Workshops
We host frequent talks and workshops by diabetes experts. The latest diabetic therapies and
management approaches, as well as other significant diabetes subjects, are covered in these
workshops.


Counselling service
People who request assistance are directed to the appropriate service providers. Global
Diabetes Initiatives have knowledgeable staff, the majority of whom have diabetes themselves
or in their families, they are well positioned to assist with general management concerns as
well as providing encouragement and emotional support. A service that health-care workers
are sometimes too busy to do. Medical advice is not provided by Global Diabetes Initiatives.


Support Group
Global Diabetes Initiatives support groups is one of its greatest assets. The goal of this group
is to allow persons with diabetes to share their experiences and gain from connection with
others in similar situations. They are usually run from a person’s house, and they provide
personal encouragement and intimate concern that is beneficial to their emotional well being.


We organise a yearly Diabetes Symposium
Here we invite all our partners, stakeholders, and other organisations to create a massive
awareness and educate on diabetes. This is usually coordinated in November of each year to
mark World Diabetes Day.


Mentoring services
We offer mentoring services and provides facilities for recreational activities and leisure,
within a strong value based and guiding principles. Global Diabetes Initiatives help to relieve
sickness, hardship and poverty amongst locals and newcomers in need by providing charitable
support in particular through education, advice and guidance, information services and
facilitating integration.


Exercise is Key
We organise a walk and talk session in the park for 3 days a week. This is a lifestyle modification
programme that can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes
