Volunteers' Week 2021

Volunteers’ Week happens every year from 1 – 7 June and is a chance for us to say a huge thank you to our army of volunteers who do so much to support people affected by diabetes. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but we’re all fighting diabetes together. 

This Volunteers’ Week, we’re celebrating how our incredible volunteers have been #StayingConnected and supporting each other throughout the pandemic. While we’ve missed being out in our community, we’ve been able to connect with others in ways we haven’t before.
