Diabetes Week

Diabetes Week is an annual highlight in the Diabetes UK calendar. It’s a time when we bring our supporters together to raise awareness of the condition, and vital funds for our work. 

Diabetes Week 2016

Sunday 12 June to Saturday 18 June 2016

This year we’re using Diabetes Week to set the record straight about diabetes.

We’ll be uncovering the truth about diabetes; what it’s like to live with it every day, and the things you wish everyone knew about living with the condition.

Over the coming months we’ll be asking about your diabetes truths; the things you’d like people to know about diabetes, and the diabetes myths you’d like to bust as we prepare to separate the fact from the fiction this Diabetes Week.

We’ll be in touch soon with more information. But if you’d like to register your interest in the campaign, email diabetesweek@diabetes.org.uk.


Catch up on Diabetes Week 2015

Thank you to everyone who took part and made Diabetes Week 2015 (Sunday 14 to Saturday 20 June) such a success. Follow the conversation below.

This Diabetes Week we wanted to remind everyone that you’re not on your own when it comes to diabetes. Actually there’s a lot of folk out there going through the same thing. And we’re rooting for you too. And we have lots of ways we can help.

Throughout the week, we were shouting about all of the ways we give support, advice, and chances to learn more about diabetes to help you manage your condition well. We also asked for your hints, tips and stories of living life to the full using #DiabetesAndMe. And you responded in droves! We loved hearing from each and every one of you.
