Living Well Taking Control (LWTC) is a non-profit organisation specialising in face-to-face support for patients living with pre-diabetes.
LWTC works with the NHS as part of the National Diabetes Prevention Programme across the UK. LWTC provides group and peer-to-peer support through regular sessions which cover a range of topics from positive mental health, exercise and a healthy diet. Patients can bring friends or family members along to sessions, enabling all round support in practice and at home.
LWTC is a Limited Liability Partnership between Birmingham-based charity Health Exchange CIC and Exeter-based charity Westbank Community Health and Social Care. Each organisation has expertise in supporting individuals to change their lives by establishing new patterns of behaviour to improve their health and wellbeing.
Westbank and Health Exchange developed diabetes prevention programmes as part of a BIG Lottery funded project.
