The Manawatu, Horowhenua, and Tararua Diabetes Trust was established in early 2000. Contracted by Te Whatu Ora - Health NZ MidCentral District (previously MidCentral DHB), we provide FREE education and youth services to people with diabetes and their family/whānau.
Our mission is 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.
In addition to our own diabetes education sessions and youth events, we work with other organizations throughout the region to increase awareness about diabetes prevention and management. Some of our partners include Sport Manawatu, THINK Hauora, General Practice Teams, Iwi Providers, the Pasifika community and new kiwis (former refugees). If you would like us to talk to your organization/group, please get in touch. Our team provide engaging and interactive diabetes sessions, tailored to meet your cultural and education needs.
