Diabetes Week is Diabetes UK's annual UK-wide awareness and fundraising week.
This year Diabetes Week will be kicking off on Sunday 8 June with a Walk for Diabetes at Stormont Estate. We will be having events and activities throughout the week so it would be great to have you join us! If you have a story to share about your diabetes then get in touch - email Shakheera.Ross@diabetes.org.uk. Whether you are living with diabetes, know someone who has diabetes, are a relative, friend, researcher or healthcare provider - we want to hear from you.
To end the week we are taking part in what will hopefully be yet another successful Big Collection weekend with our national partner, Tesco. If you missed it last year then this is your chance - helps us make this Big Collection even bigger than 2013! Northern Ireland did so well last year and raised a whopping £37,000 during the weekend so let us do it all over again and join our team at a Tesco store near you.

Diabetes Week took place from 9 to 15 June 2013 and the theme was research. We’ve been making breakthroughs in diabetes research for more than 75 years, and we never stop working towards a future without diabetes. With your support and donations we can do so much more.
As well as showcasing some of the current diabetes research projects in Northern Ireland, we encouraged you to become part of the research story. Whether you've benefitted from a research project or are holding a fundraising event for us during Diabetes Week, we'll be sharing your stories on our website and social media pages.
