About Assemble

Our volunteer strategy outlines our vision - we recognise that we live in an ever-changing world and we need to adapt to allow us to meet new challenges.

We promised to find a new volunteering system that allows us to support our volunteers in the best way possible, and respond to trends in volunteering by offering opportunities that will help us create a world where diabetes can do no harm.

Assemble allows you to manage your own volunteering journey with a few clicks of a button. You can:

  • add and edit your personal details
  • customise your newsfeed so that you hear about stories, opportunities and events that are relevant to you and your role
  • access all the documents and information you need to carry out your role, in one place
  • use the interactive map and directory to connect and stay in touch with other volunteers in your area
  • add your own activities, tasks, and hours, so you can keep track of how often you’ve volunteered throughout the year
  • plan out your volunteering activities using the calendar
  • see all your current volunteer roles at a glance and easily access any training required for your role
  • access the mobile app to manage your volunteering activities on the go.

If you have any questions, or would like to know more about Assemble, then get in touch with us at AssembleSupport@diabetes.org.uk - we’d love to hear from you.
