What patients say about the SWEET courses: 

"Many thanks for your SWEET1 course. It delivered many answers. Your support is invaluable , as only being diagnosed in November of last year as Type 3C, the support you have given me has been brilliant."

"The course encouraged me to go out for a meal tonight (first time since my spleen ruptured in 2017), and we went to the local Toby in Basildon."
