The study evaluates the knowledge of diabetes education programmes and support systems on Type 2 diabetes self-management among Black Africans in Liverpool. Self-management of diabetes takes into consideration the choices that people with diabetes must make on a daily basis. A total of thirty participants, 43.3% males and 56.7% females, with type 2 diabetes of age range between 40 – 79 years completed questionnaires combined with semi-structured interview (n=30). The duration of their diabetes was between 1-30 years. The study adopts non-probabilistic, snowball sampling approach as the primary and most effective strategy for choosing participants for data collection and employs descriptive and multiple Regression Statistical Analysis. Based on these findings, it was suggested that improving knowledge of people with diabetes is of utmost importance in order for them to control or prevent the complications associated with the disease among others.
