Brigstowe, in partnership with Sirona Care & Health, have relaunched their Type 2 diabetes Peer Mentoring Service in the South Glos, North Somerset & Bristol area which was put on hold due to lock down.
People living with Type 2 Diabetes can meet with a mentor on a weekly basis for up to 4 months, who also has Type 2 diabetes and will:-
· Listen to the challenges or obstacles that person may have in terms of behaviour change
· Share their own experiences of what helps
· Provide appropriate information about type 2 diabetes
· Support to identify goals and will encourage, support and listen to you
*Due to COVID-19 this is a digital service at the moment where meetings happen over Zoom/telephone.
If you yourself, or know someone that has recently been diagnosed or is struggling with Type 2 diabetes and would benefit from speaking to someone who is living well with the condition, please do get in touch.
They are also currently recruiting for a new cohort of mentors with training in the New Year, so if you’re interested in helping others to live well with Type 2 diabetes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01179 555 038
