Diabetes UK

Diabetes UK is the charity leading the fight against the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, creating a world where diabetes can do no harm.

Did you know...

There are currently 4 million people in the UK living with diabetes, and 11.5 million more at increased risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. Those diagnosed face the risk of life-changing, and life-limiting, complications, unless they are given the very best care and the support they need to manage their condition well. As a society we need to work together now – and take action now – to fund critical research, improve healthcare and treatment, and prevent yet more people developing this potentially life-threatening condition.

What makes Diabetes UK different

Our strategy clearly outlines what needs to change and how Diabetes UK can make this happen. We hope to inspire all of you – people with diabetes, volunteers, healthcare professionals, donors, commercial partners and the staff of Diabetes UK – to help us meet these challenges.

Other ways to support

There are many ways to get involved in the work of Diabetes UK, from fundraising or volunteering, to campaigning or acting as an advocate in your community – your help matters, and we welcome everyone. So whether you want to jump out of a plane to raise money for research, visit your local school to explain diabetes to young children, or lobby Parliament, how you help is up to you.

Other ways you can show your support include visiting the Online Shop, Enter our Diabetes UK lottery and raffle, supporting membership, Text to donate, Gift in Wills and regular gifts.
