Staff at Diabetes UK are working towards increasing the content and information on their online learning platform The Learning Zone for people from Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities with diabetes across Birmingham and Sandwell.
To do this, Diabetes UK wish to recruit people from these ethnic backgrounds to join focus groups, to hear first-hand about what it’s like to live with diabetes, or care for someone that does, and to find out what information and support would further help them.
As a gesture of thanks, an e-gift-card up to the value of £25 for is will be offered to participants who fully engage in their focus groups or in one-to-one conversations. If there are enough people interested in taking part (minimum of eight), Diabetes UK would be willing to visit an organisation or hire a room in the local area to conduct the focus groups. Refreshments will be provided.
If you have any questions please email Midlands@diabetes.org.uk
Please get in touch by Friday, 8th July 2022.
