About

Who are we?

Diabetes UK is the largest organisation in the UK working for people with diabetes, funding research, campaigning and helping people live with the condition.

We have over 150,000 members. We work for people with diabetes, their carers, family and friends. We represent the interests of all people with diabetes by lobbying the government for better standards of care and the best quality of life.

Our mission is to improve the lives of people with diabetes and to work towards a future where diabetes can do no harm.

You’ll also find some guest posts from other people who regularly blog about diabetes, along with some posts from us talking about interesting and exciting plans that are coming up.
