We support people living with or affected by diabetes.
There are currently over 4 million people in the UK living with diabetes, including an estimated 1 million people who have diabetes but do not know it. A further 11.5 million people in the UK are at high risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. We are the UK’s leading diabetes charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by diabetes. In the south west, we have local groups, run Know Your Risk events and raise awareness of diabetes through community engagement.
