Support our work with the Health Conditions in School Alliance


Diabetes UK chairs the Health Conditions in Schools Alliance and together we have already changed the law to get better care in England. We’re now asking Government to do more to make sure that schools know what their duty is and that they are doing it.

Take our Action Challenge

You've already helped us get the support of a number of MPs who have taken action for your Type 1 diabetes: Make the grade campaign by writing to schools about our campaign. You can get your local MP to take action by asking her or him to talk to schools in the area. Ask your MP to spread the word about the change in the law, and let them know about our free resources for schools. MPs can use this template letter (Word, 251KB) to write to schools in their constituency. Find your MP on the UK Parliament website.


Whether your local school is in Swansea or Swindon, our Type 1 diabetes: Make the grade campaign action toolkit (Word, 70KB) gives you some pointers on what you can do, and say.

Hands Up


'Hands Up' looks at the different challenges faced by school staff and features the view points of children, parents and healthcare professionals. Why don't you send it to your local school?
