It is knowledge, it is communication.


Diabetes has a huge impact on the individual and those around them.

It is increasingly recognised that community involvement is vital to prevent the development of diabetes, manage existing diabetes in the best possible way, and prevent the serious potential consequences of diabetes.


The Diabetes Projects Trust was originally called the 'South Auckland Diabetes Project' and in 2013 we celebrated 21 years of delivering services focused on preventing diabetes and its complications. Diabetes Projects Trust emphasises partnership with the community to achieve better health for present and for future generations.


Sadly in 2018 we farewelled one of our long running and successful services, the DCSS Quality Improvement service.  This was delivered into GP Practices to help improve the care provided to people with diabetes.  See here for further information. 


We do however continue with our other  popular programmes and always have new projects under development.   Please don't hesitate to make contact if we can help with training/staff development, design of health promotion or health education programmes, development of new resources, or  evaluation/research in the community.
