Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities program

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

Community

Are you interested in services and resources specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander with diabetes? We have lots of programs that can equip you to talk about diabetes and share important diabetes-related messages with members and organisations in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Diabetes Yarning program

Empower people to live well with diabetes with the help of diabetes-related knowledge and skills that you’ll learn in this face-to-face program.

Online Peer Support program

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with type 2 diabetes

Developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders living with type 2 diabetes, the program lets peer support volunteers interact online to encourage participants to share their stories and experiences. Follow the diabetes journeys of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peer volunteers on film through this Facebook group-hosted online peer support program. Get online with these inspiring volunteers and talk about diabetes, diagnosis, physical activity, healthy eating, family support and lots more.
