If you’re living with diabetes and finding it hard to get active in your day-to-day life, we’re here to help.
We understand that it can be difficult to find the motivation to move more, and that sometimes it can be hard to know where to begin – especially if you’re new to exercise.
Diabetes UK is running free online 10-week courses specifically tailored to support people who want to start moving more or those doing 30 minutes or less exercise a week.
From movement to music, to boxercise and Tai chi, each weekly class will focus on a different gentle activity – giving you the chance to try out new ways to get active and find what suits you.
Plus, we’ll be holding Q&A sessions at the end of each class, so that you can find out more about managing your condition and get tips and advice from our clinical experts and guest speakers.
Knowing where to start when making movement part of your everyday life can feel daunting, so you can also talk to us.
Our helpline offers one-on-one support with trained advisors who understand diabetes and can help you find ways to move more. #We are available Monday -Friday 9am – 6pm, on 0345 123 2399.
