Our Partnership with Dexcom UK

Working together to empower a healthy society, so diabetes can do no harm

In November 2022, we launched our partnership with Dexcom, who are supporting people with diabetes by providing funding to three of our programmes: Diabetes Labs, the Diabetes UK Helpline and our Learning Zone platform. 

  

Tackling Inequalities Lab 

Dexcom are supporting The Tackling Inequality in Diabetes Lab, which is a bold, bottom-up strategic response to the challenge of improving outcomes for people with diabetes who experience inequalities.  

Based on factors outside their direct control, people with diabetes experience systematic, unfair and avoidable differences in their diabetes care, the treatment they receive and the opportunities they have to lead healthier lives. Working with individuals and healthcare professionals within the diabetes community, we want to find clear, actionable, and strategic approaches to tackling inequality in diabetes care. 

Helpline 

The Diabetes UK Helpline supports thousands of people every year – in 2022 alone, over 35,000 people used the service. Dexcom provided training to the helpline team, helping them develop their knowledge of the technology available to people living with diabetes. The Helpline team can provide specialist information and advice in a confidential setting for all people living with diabetes, their family or friends and people who are worried they might be at risk. 

Learning Zone 

Our Learning Zone platform provides free tailored information about how to better self-manage diabetes to over 100,000 registered users. With Dexcom’s support, we will be creating a new Technology module, providing a platform to share content from our Type 1 & Tech Conference. This module will allow users a chance to work through an interactive training course that will increase their knowledge and understanding of diabetes technology devices.
