We are the UK's leading diabetes charity. We care for,
connect with and campaign alongside and on behalf of all people affected by and
at risk of diabetes.

There are currently 3.9 million people

Type 2 diabetes but do not know it.

• We provide information, advice and
support to help people manage their diabetes effectively and confidently.

• We campaign with and for people with
diabetes to improve the quality of care across the UK’s health services, so
that everyone affected by the condition gets access to the best treatment and
standards of care.

funder of diabetes research, funding pioneering research into care, cure and
prevention for all types of diabetes.

• We work to halt the rising number of

prevent or delay its onset.
