Our policy, standards, code of behaviour and reporting procedure (940KB) recognise and respond to safeguarding risks, including those pertaining to diabetes and Diabetes UK. We strive to minimise risk whilst providing services that enable children and vulnerable adults to obtain the support they need for their own and others’ diabetes.
If Diabetes UK has concerns about someone’s well-being, the concern may be reported to the Diabetes UK Safeguarding Team and external safeguarding authorities. We would need to share what you tell us with someone if:
- You ask us to
- We believe your life or someone else’s life is in danger
- You tell us that you or someone else is being, or is at risk of being abused by another person.
If a member of the public places information on a Diabetes UK social media site that raises concerns about their own, or someone else’s well-being, Diabetes UK may also remove the information.
If you would like further information about safeguarding at Diabetes UK, please contact the Safeguarding team:
