EMPOWER T2n is a free education programme for people living with Type 2 diabetes, delivered by Spirit Health on behalf of the local NHS.
The course is designed to help you understand what Type 2 diabetes is, the effect it has on your body and how to make small, achievable changes to the food you eat and your everyday life.
You can choose to take the course online or at a local venue to you. Courses are run during the day, with evening and weekend courses also available.
You will take the course either on your own or part of a small group, either online or face to face (when it is safe to do so).
“It was a very interesting programme, the instructors were very good and explained everything in an easy way – I would recommend people go to the class!”
“It’s nice to know people can receive help for diabetes in a friendly and helpful way.”
“I would like to say what a fantastic thing that these meetings are. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago and believed that I didn’t have a clue what it meant or how I managed it until today.”
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to the whole EMPOWER team. I’ve been really worried about my newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. But today’s course has given me some fantastic knowledge and I feel a little easier now on how to get started. Thank you, it’s a crazy time at the moment, but I wanted you to know you really have made a difference to my life and how I was feeling, lots of positive changes to start. Thanks again. You guys are amazing. Stay safe.”
