Ways to volunteer
Events volunteers work with Diabetes UK staff, talk to members of the public and hand out information about diabetes at all our events to raise awareness of diabetes. The events range from stands in shopping centres, high streets, big events such as melas to helping out at our roadshows.

Know Your Risk volunteer
Our know your risk volunteers help at organised Diabetes UK events and use the diabetes risk score to assess members of the public for their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. They raise awareness of diabetes and the risk factors associated with Type 2 diabetes and encourage people to get tested by their healthcare team if at risk.

Fundraising Ambassadors work with the Regional Fundraising Team and local supporters to increase fundraising support across the region. Our fundraising ambassadors will help by attending and promoting local events in the region, attending cheque presentations, give talks to groups about the work of Diabetes UK and to place, collect and bank money from collection tins in the local area.
