We have a Free Generic Expert Patients Programme (EPP) and a Free Living with Diabetes (LWD) course for Type 2, both only take 15 hours of someone’s time, both are group based with clients being peer supported.
The EPP course is delivered by volunteer tutors who themselves have LTC’s therefore understanding the clients difficult emotions and how they can deal with day to day management of their conditions. This course takes 6 weeks, 2 and a half hours per week. THIS IS FOR LAMBETH RESIDENTS
The LWD course is delivered by a Health Care Professional (HCP) and a volunteer Facilitator who lives with Type 2 Diabetes. This course takes 5 weeks, 3 hours per week and includes diabetes specific information. THIS IS FOR SOUTHWARK & LAMBETH RESIDENTS
