Raising awareness this Diabetes Week

Diabetes is a hidden condition, but the people living with diabetes should never be left at the back of the queue because of that. One in 14 of us live with diabetes across the UK and even more care for a loved one who does.  

Boards with 'Diabetes is Serious' and 'Time for Action' written on them

That’s why, this Diabetes Week (13-19 June), we’re calling on decision makers to do more to support people living with and affected by diabetes. We’re calling on all MLAs to make diabetes a priority in the new Assembly’s plans because there are over 105,000 people living with this relentless, serious condition. This number will continue to grow every year.

There are no days off with diabetes and it requires management and support day-in, day-out, and it can have serious complications such as the risk of amputation or sight loss. Visit today, to sign up to receive the latest updates from our campaign, Diabetes Is Serious, and ​find out more ways you can get involved.
