About us

The Chelmsford and District Diabetes UK Group has over 400 members in mid-Essex, including Chelmsford, Braintree, Ingatestone, Maldon, South Woodham Ferrers and Witham.

We meet face to face and via Zoom on the third Tuesday of January, March, May, July, September and November.  From March 2023 the face-to-face meetings will be held in room 1 at Christ Church, New London Road, Chelmsford CM2 0AW.  

We hope to continue with zoom only meetings in the months of February, October and December.  

If you would like to join our Zoom meetings and haven't previously let us know, please contact us via email at chelmsforddiabetes@outlook.com.

This is an opportunity to meet other people who lives are in some way affected by diabetes.

Meetings are relaxed and informal occasions giving the opportunity to get together and exchange views, news and experiences and any matters relating to diabetes.

At most meetings we invite various speakers to come and talk about diverse aspects of diabetes and related topics and questions from members are encouraged.
