 There will be the opportunity to network with other people who raise awareness and funds for Diabetes UK, enabling you to share ideas and experiences. The winner of the Diabetes UK Inspire awards will also be announced, and there will be an exciting update on Diabetes UK funded research. One of the highlights of this year’s conference will be gathering your views on the future of Diabetes UK.  Our current strategy runs until 2015 and so over the next year we will be beginning the process of planning for our next strategy.  Through an interactive workshop you will have the opportunity to feed in your views and tell us what you think our priorities should be.  As volunteers have such a vital role to play in the work that we do, we hope you will be able to join us and have your say on the future direction of Diabetes UK.
