Build understanding


Not enough people understand diabetes. They don’t realise how many people it affects. They don’t realise how serious it is. And for too many it’s just a punchline to a bad joke.

We’re fighting to make sure people know diabetes. It’s a fight you can join. We need your help to share knowledge, build understanding, and tackle stigma.

You can help people know how to reduce their risk of complications. And when things do get tough for people you can help us make sure they get the support they need.

Share your story

Whether it’s writing a blog or talking to the media your stories and experiences can help us show other people the reality of living with diabetes every day.
