TOUCH Diabetes Support is a service under TOUCH Community Services
 


Overview
  • Providing a community of care and support for persons and families living with diabetes
  • Supporting and advocating for the diabetes community




Founded in 1992 to reach out to individuals and families affected by insulin-treated diabetes, TOUCH Diabetes Support (TDS) offers a community of care and support made up of people and families living with diabetes, volunteer healthcare professionals, and many who have a heart for this community. Our programmes are designed with the goal of helping them live well with diabetes.

A key feature of our service is support groups that cater to adults, youths and children with diabetes. We also provide diabetes education, lifestyle counseling, and organise camps and community events to help the public better understand diabetes.

Diabetes is not a disability. Whether it is climbing Mount Kinabalu or cycling to Kuantan or taking part in a triathlon, TDS' adventure learning projects, key of which is Project Discovery, have tested the tenacity and resilience of individuals with diabetes. Our Centre located at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 runs a range of activities catering to adults, youths and children with diabetes.

  "Being able to relate comfortably to people around me on the topic of diabetes is something that I look forward to whenever I step into the centre at TOUCH Diabetes Support. My participation in a variety of programmes, such as Project SMILE, a community arts programme by TOUCH, has allowed me to experience remarkable joy and forge long-lasting friendships. More importantly, I am now able to see myself as a person leading a healthy lifestyle with diabetes and not someone struggling against diabetes."


- Ng Kuan Hwa, client of TOUCH Diabetes Support
