sport, socialise and get more physical

activity in their life.

The United Leicester initiative has

been delivered by Leicester's professional

sports clubs to help tackle physical

inactivity and improve lifestyle behaviours

for primary school children. The project,

which involves Leicester Tigers, Leicester

City Football Club, Leicestershire County

Cricket, Leicester Riders and Leicester

Hockey, aims to encourage young people

to get active and learn more about healthy

lifestyles, using coaches from the clubs to

inspire pupils.

Through Cities Changing Diabetes

Leicester, a number of Type 2 diabetes

risk screening events have taken place

in the city, including at local community

events, sports events and workplaces, in

order to help increase awareness of what

Type 2 diabetes is, and to signpost those

who may be at risk of developing the

condition to interventions.

Working out

The programme in Leicester will now be

working to empower local communities,

including workplaces and places

of worship, by training community

champions to raise awareness of

Type 2 diabetes and to conduct risk

screening amongst their peers, so they

can support people to reduce their risk

of developing the condition. . The LDC

is creating the curriculum for this training

and individuals from local workplaces and

faith communities have been engaged to

help make sure the training is based upon

their specific needs and the needs of their

communities and cultures.

In Manchester, the Cities Changing

Diabetes programme is a joint working

project that is funded by and developed in

collaboration between Health Innovation

Manchester and Novo Nordisk. Work

is currently taking place under the

programme to understand the nature of

the Type 2 diabetes challenge in Greater

Manchester, which includes research

being conducted by National Institute

for Health Research Applied Research

Collaboration - Greater Manchester to

help understand which local groups are

most at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes

and the social and cultural determinants

that relate to this. This knowledge will

support the development of targeted

initiatives intended to help reduce the

prevalence of T2D in Greater Manchester.

A Novo Nordisk spokesperson

explains, "The Cities Changing Diabetes

programme is working to increase

understanding of T2D and supporting a

range of partners in cities across the world

to come together to identify and develop

targeted actions to bend the curve on

rising levels of urban diabetes. There

are now 36 cities engaged in this global

network, bringing together businesses,

city leaders, healthcare professionals,

policy makers, universities, community

leaders, people living with diabetes and

other partners to share expertise and

knowledge and find solutions that will help

make our cities healthier."

Sophie O'Connell, programme

manager for the Cities Changing Diabetes

initiative in Leicester added, "The Cities

Changing Diabetes initiative has brought

many partners and stakeholders across

Leicester together to tackle a common

cause; to improve the prevention and

management of Type 2 diabetes in the

city. It has allowed partners to learn from

one another and utilise the skills we have

locally to tackle the challenge, as well as

sharing insights and inspiration about how

to improve the health of our communities

with cities elsewhere in the world. This

includes Houston, where we been able

to share our experiences in Leicester and

learn from their work to empower lay faith

leaders to deliver diabetes prevention

education to their congregations. "

Arguably, many of us are living in what

is called 'an obesogenic environment', but

it needs to be known what drives obesity

and thus the rise of T2 diabetes. There are

many complex underlying factors but the

main point of Cities Changing Diabetes is

to improve communications between all

parts of the overall community, bringing

the threads together, not to see the rising

tide of diagnoses of T2 diabetes lapping

up to the doorstep of the NHS and just

turn around walk away.

Sharing insights and inspiration about how

to improve the health of our communities

with cities elsewhere in the world
