Could a cure for diabetes be your life's legacy?

Why include a gift to us in your Will?

Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with diabetes.

We’re working day in, day out to save and improve the lives of people with this relentless condition. This work must continue, because future generations depend on it – but we can only carry on with your kind support.

Gifts in Wills make nearly half of our work possible, fuelling our search for a cure. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to fund such a wide range of pioneering research in care, treatment and prevention of diabetes.

"A gift in your Will can be life-changing for families like us."

Suzanne and son Joe, who has type 1 diabetes






Four reasons to include a gift to Diabetes UK in your Will:

1. Transform the future. As researchers relentlessly pursue new breakthroughs in diabetes care and treatment, they urgently need the funding you can help provide


2. Peace of mind. Once your Will is written you can relax in the knowledge that, should anything happen to you, your loved ones – and the causes you care about – will be looked after


3. It’s never been easier. In most cases, making or updating your Will is surprisingly straightforward. You can even do it free of charge by using the National Free Wills Network


4. Leave a powerful legacy. By including Diabetes UK in your Will, you can make sure your values, the things you care about, live on after you. It’s an amazing way to make a lasting difference.
