Our legal structure & constitution
We changed our name to The British Diabetic Association in 1954. This is our legal name, although since the year 2000 we have operated using the name Diabetes UK.
We are a company limited by guarantee (that is, we have no shareholders or share capital) and have been registered as a charity with the Charity Commission for England & Wales since 1967. We are also registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
Our governing document is our Articles of Association (PDF, 241KB).
