Help make a difference to the lives of 3.5 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and an estimated 549,000 people who have the condition, but don’t know it.
Our 10,000+ volunteers are at the heart of Diabetes UK. Without this support, Diabetes UK could not carry out its vital work in research, education and care.
Our volunteers bring skills, experience, energy, enthusiasm and commitment to Diabetes UK. And volunteering can make a difference in your life too, letting you meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.
