Fully funded workshops for Suffolk Adult Social Care Providers!

CDE Logo.jpg

Over the years, we have had numerous conversations with Christian at Care Development East (CDE) and the team at Suffolk Care Association about the prevalence of diabetes; in particular adults 

receiving social care support (whether in their own home or in a care home).   Both organisations have a collaborative mindset and provide crucial support to care providers operating in Suffolk.


In recognition of the importance (and benefit) of accessing role relevant training, Care Development East have commissioned six ‘diabetes awareness and blood glucose monitoring & glucometer training’ workshops specifically for Suffolk social care providers.  We are delighted to be working with the CDE team on this important initiative to help more people working in adult social care roles in Suffolk feel up to date, knowledgeable and confident when supporting adults living with diabetes. Particularly as 1 in 4 residents in care homes are living with diabetes.

In a friendly and inclusive environment, learners will be taken on a journey starting at the very beginning to lay the foundations of knowledge and understanding regarding diabetes.  We can then build on those foundations to further enhance learners’ confidence and skills to support adults living with diabetes. 

Our ultimate aim is to help maintain (or even improve) the health and wellbeing outcomes and therefore the quality of life of people living with diabetes.

The sessions are ‘in person’ workshops, giving the learners the opportunity to ask questions and relate the increased knowledge to their own particular settings and the people they support. 


They will be taking place at either IP-City Centre (Ipswich) or Epsilon House on Ransomes Industrial Estate (Ipswich), 9am-4pm, on the dates listed below.
