I am proud to lead a team of capable, experienced health professionals who are passionate about the work they do to educate and support those in our community diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes. As a non-profit registered charity we really appreciate the support we receive from local and regional DHB’s along with the grants and donations from many community groups and organisations. Our programmes are free of charge and part of our regions responsibility to community health and wellbeing. Don’t hesitate to make contact with our team if you need help or advice.

Andrea Bell

Youth Coordinator

I love my job working with youth from birth – 30 yrs who have diabetes and their whānau/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.

NZ Registered Dietitian

Good health starts with food! As one of the 3 pillars of diabetes management,  my mission is to educate  and empower people to make informed food choices that improve their health and diabetes.  It's a pleasure to work in the community with people who want to 'take action' to manage their diabetes.
