All about DWELL
Why choose DWELL?
We find out what’s important to you and use your goals and priorities to build your personalised 12 week programme.
We offer a wide variety of activities to give you the facts, the hands-on experience and the support to help you manage the practicalities and move towards a more empowered life.
By working with your own motivation, rather than telling you what to do, we accompany you towards durable change.
What does DWELL include?
1-2-1 motivational conversations to help you set your goals
Well-being groups and activities to help overcome the hurdles that make change tricky
Information sessions about type 2 diabetes to make sure you’ve got the facts
Practical sessions to help make cooking and exercise more fun
Access to an online support tool
We don’t want to tell you what’s going to happen because the path is yours to choose.
Imagine, for example, meeting others to share your stories, your triumphs and your struggles, learning new and fun ways to move, perhaps exploring your creative side in one of our workshops or discovering the joys of gardening or cooking, and at the same time getting your hands on the latest information about type 2 diabetes and integrating practical steps into your daily routine, so that you can focus your attention on enjoying life.
If you are over 18 years old, have type 2 diabetes and would like to participate in DWELL contract us:
