Insulin Army

What we’re all about

We are a group of young people with type 1 diabetes, organising regular meetups at local cafes and bars. As the first university society for people with diabetes, members can meet others with T1D of the same age range, for peer support, advice, or just for a chat and a drink! Many of us are also volunteers/advocates, so we often have exciting news and opportunities for members to join national and international campaigns.


At our meet-ups, you can discuss things about T1D that no one without the condition could understand: from recommending foods, talking about treatments and new technology, and talking about personal experiences. We also care about access to insulin, so campaigners are more than welcome to join!


Our members are students/young adults living with Type 1 diabetes, with rare types also welcome. If you are interested in what we do but not diabetic yourself, follow our page on Facebook to show your support!
