All of our Trustees support and work with us on a voluntary basis to ensure that we are doing everything we can to fight diabetes. Our Trustees collectively have a broad range of skills and experience including those affected by diabetes as well as healthcare professionals and experts from across the four nations. Trustees usually serve an initial term of up to three years, which may be extended on two further occasions up to a maximum of nine years.
