Hello my friend,

Welcome to Hull and District Diabetes Support Group.

Let me tell you about us, we are an independent local volunteer-led not for profit self-help support group for local people.
We meet the first Tuesday of the month, February to November 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, at the  Royal Hotel, 170 Ferensway/ Paragon Station/Hull Interchange, Hull.
We are open to everyone, people with Diabetes, others at high risk of developing Diabetes, their families, carers and anyone wishing to know more about this long-term condition.

At each meeting, we have the privilege of having top Healthcare Professional speakers which include, Professors, Consultants, Doctors Diabetes research and much more, all of whom give their time free to present different aspects of Diabetes and Related Health Problems, offering information and advice for a healthier lifestyle

As a group, we visit many various venues throughout Hull and District promoting, Diabetes and Related Health Problems Awareness through giving booklets/leaflets to the public, often we are accompanied by Healthcare Professionals who are available to listen and give advice about living with Diabetes and living a healthier lifestyle
Our group members are available by request, to visit groups in the area who may wish us to give a Power Point Presentation and give booklets/leaflets, there are no charges.
At least once a year we are able to take group members, families and friends for a free outing, we also have Christmas lunch at the  Royal Hotel, when- ever possible, we subsidise group members’ costs

To gain funding for these events, our group hold fundraising events such as Tombola’s throughout the year at various venues and making bids to various funders.

We work closely with Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning groups, Hull and East Yorkshire NHS research centre, University of Hull, East Riding Voluntary Services (ERVAS) Ltd and many other agencies

We would really appreciate your involvement with the group

Hull and District Diabetes support group is currently inviting researchers to submit an application for a research project that is relevant to the clinical care of patients who have Diabetes. The application must be able to demonstrate clear tangible value to the patients with Diabetes. It must also take into account their priorities and needs and must be aligned to the service needs and priorities within the National Health Service. The project funding available is a maximum of £5,000.

Applicants should submit an outline proposal (about 500 words) by e-mail to hull_district_diabetes_support@hotmail.co.uk by no later than 14th March 2018 for 2018/19 funding. The outline should include brief details of the proposed study and estimated cost. Please indicate whether the study is to be part-funded from elsewhere. The outline submission will be evaluated and if successful at this stage you will be invited to submit a formal application which will be subject to peer review. We are an NIHR non-commercial partner; applications are open to any researchers in the UK with no expectation that the research will take place locally.
