Community Health Service


55 Hugo Johnston Drive, Penrose, Auckland

9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.


Diabetes NZ - Auckland Branch's mission is to raise awareness of, advocating for, and supporting people with all types of diabetes, to improve their wellness/hauora.  

We have a Mobile Awareness Service (Van) that visits community locations to reach those most at risk to provide education and testing.  This service raises awareness of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, its symptoms, risk factors and complications.
Our HOPE programme is a diabetes prevention programme delivered face-to-face in community locations as well as online. It is whānau centred.  Our aim of the HOPE programme is to foster healthier lifestyles amongst those most ‘at risk’, leading to a reduction in the incidence of diabetes and diabetes complications.
We have 7 support groups located all around Auckland - youth (Diabetes Youth Auckland Support Evenings for parents and caregivers of kids newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes) to adult support groups (mixed type 1 and type 2).  New members are always welcome!  
Diabetes Youth Auckland aims to build confidence and independence and provide inspiration for youth and their families living with diabetes through running a programme that encompasses support, education, events and camps (youth and teen camps).  Diabetes Youth Auckland is a part of Diabetes NZ - Auckland Branch.
Our Mobile Workplace Diabetes Service delivers to workplaces diabetes education and testing for their workforce at their workplace. As diabetes is one of NZ's fastest growing long-term medical conditions, our Workplace Diabetes Service can form part of a workplaces ongoing Wellness programme. We have specialist staff who are experienced, knowledgeable and understand diabetes and its burden on individuals, whānau and workplaces.
