Welcome to the Gartnavel Group

It is our aim to provide help and support to people living with diabetes, primarily in the North West of Glasgow, although we welcome all who are interested.

We do this through group meetings, designed with the express purpose of providing individuals with a safe, social forum to discuss diabetes and its effects.

When and where we can, we also try to raise money to promote awareness of diabetes and generally contribute in any way we can.

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.
