Diabetes Peer Educators: Research, Policy and Practice

A new case study details how young people played their part in improving diabetes services in East London.

The document outlines the origins of a “Young Commissioner” scheme to help ensure diabetes serves for children and young people were redesigned to be more appropriate and acceptable to young people in the borough of Newham.

It sets out how they were recruited and supported, how the CLAHRC provided training and support, and the engagement work they did (see image above) to get a picture of how well diabetes services were planned and delivered in the borough.
