DWELL (Diabetes and WELLbeing) European project is a 4 year project funded by the EU Interreg 2 Seas programme 2014-2020 and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The programme being developed and evaluated aims to enable patients with Type 2 diabetes to access tailored support, empowering them to self-manage their condition and improve their wellbeing. It is a 12-week patient support programme of ‘pick and mix’ options. Participants also receive 1-2-1 motivational conversations, wellbeing activities and information sessions about Type 2 diabetes. The project also includes a training package for staff to deliver the programme and the development of DWELL Patient Ambassadors who support the project, programme and other participants in a variety of roles.
