North East and North Cumbria Network

Parents, Carers & Families

This page is dedicated to Parents/Carers and Families with Diabetes that live in the North East and Cumbria Region. 


We have dedicated parent representatives who work on your behalf to give views to all healthcare professionals within the North East and Cumbria Region to improve diabetes care regionally and nationally. 


There is a dedicated Facebook page for parents and carers that lets you connect to other families and offers you support. You can share your experiences and you will find useful information and details of any events in your area. Go to:


Please download a copy of the facebook poster to display in clinic and to pass onto others.
