Diabetes UK Community Champions
Following a successful bid for funding from the Department of Health Volunteering Fund national awards Diabetes UK are in the process of recruiting diabetes Community Champions in Birmingham
This project was developed because people from Black Asian and minority ethnic communities (BAME) communities are at an increased risk, relative to the white population, of diabetes and long term complications such as heart and kidney disease, amputations and blindness.
Diabetes Community Champions are volunteers who help to educate and raise awareness of diabetes and Diabetes UK to people from BAME communities.
