40 years a volunteer and counting

With over 40 years volunteering for Diabetes Scotland, Bob McQueen is one of our most committed supporters.

Bob McQueen

A lead volunteer at Type 1 events for children over the years, Bob is now a regular fixture at healthcare centres across Clackmannanshire offering information and support to people living with, or at risk of, diabetes.

“I’ve met so many people living with diabetes over the years and each one has their own personal story of how the condition has affected them."

"From parents who are struggling to manage their toddler’s Type 1 diabetes to young people who are disengaged from health services, to people that don’t know where to get support, to people that people that want to reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes."

"Every person is an individual and should be able to access the care and service that are right for them.""

I am eager to reach as many people as possible to help them better understand their diabetes, get access to the support they need and manage their condition well.

"I enjoy being a Diabetes Scotland volunteer and I hope my contribution over the year has helped people affected by diabetes to live happier and healthier lives."

Thanks to our committed volunteers like Bob, we are one step closer to reaching our vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm.
