Volunteering - Diabetes UK


Help make a difference to the lives of 173,000 people living with diabetes in Wales. 

Our volunteers are at the heart of Diabetes UK Cymru.  Without this support, Diabetes UK Cymru could not carry out its vital work.

Our volunteers bring skills, experience, commitment and enthusiasm to Diabetes UK.  Volunteering can introduce you to new people, help you develop new skills and have fun.

Diabetes UK Cymru offers a range of voluntary opportunities. You can help us in the following roles:
