About us

The Diabetes UK Maidstone Area Parents Support (MAPS) group is one of over 350 voluntary groups situated throughout the UK.

Our goal is to provide support and education to children living with Type 1 diabetes, as well as their family, friends. We also work with anyone in the wider community who is interested in knowing more about diabetes.

We encourage those interested to attend our group meetings and events which are a welcoming and social environment for people to discuss diabetes and its effects. Support and companionship are some of the simplest yet most important aspects of living with diabetes - this is why our group exists and we want to help in any way that we can.
