About us

The Diabetes UK Mansfield and Ashfield group is one of over 350 local  voluntary groups situated throughout the UK.

The Mansfield and Ashfield Group raises funds for local use for the benefit of both adults and children, particularly children's educational holidays. We also contribute towards Diabetes UK Research Fund.

We encourage those interested to attend our group meetings which are a welcoming and social environment for people to discuss diabetes and its effects. Support and companionship are some of the simplest yet most important aspects of living with diabetes - this is why our group exists and we want to help in any way that we can.
