There’s a wonderful article in the Lancashire Telegraph by Peter Magill, focussing on the fantastic work being done by Paul Walker and the BwD Diabetes Peer Support Group.

Paul has gone from being a client here at Community CVS to offering peer support for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes to setting up the group to provide a range of help and support for those living with the condition throughout Blackburn with Darwen.

The group began operating last November and, as of this month, has started a number of drop-in sessions at Blackburn Central Library (first Tuesday of the month from 1 to 3pm and the third Tuesday of the month from 7 to 9pm) and in The Community Wellbeing Hub in the Darwen End at Ewood Park (second Wednesday of the month between 3 and 7pm).

Additionally, Paul has been planning a conference around diabetes, which will take place on Wednesday 12th June from 12 noon to 4pm at The Community Wellbeing Hub.
