The Manawatu, Horowhenua, and Tararua Diabetes Trust was established in early 2000. We have contracts with MidCentral DHB to provide FREE education and youth services to people with diabetes and their family/whanau.
We strive to improve the health and well-being of people with diabetes in the MidCentral DHB region. We are committed to helping people get the knowledge, support, and confidence they need to lead healthy, happy lives and prevent diabetes-related complications
Kia Ora, we are contracted by MidCentral DHB to provide FREE diabetes and prediabetes education to people with diabetes, prediabetes and their families/ whanau. Working with people with diabetes and prediabetes is very rewarding – as through our programmes, we can assist and empower them to make positive changes to their health and wellbeing. I feel very privileged to be a part of this.
Ngā mihi nā
I love my job working with youth from birth – 30yrs who have diabetes and their whanau/families. I am continually inspired by their courage and tenacity. They are true warriors!’
I organise social events, camps and support groups whereby our community can connect, have fun, take time to recharge and encourage each other on their journey. Support and advocacy is also an important part of my role.
