Text to donate

A donation from you today could help us understand the causes of diabetes, enable people to prevent or manage their condition, and eventually find a cure.

Text to donate is the easiest way to give to us – using your mobile phone. It only takes a few seconds to make a big difference.

Where can I send text donations from?

This service is available in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales only. You must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian's permission to send an SMS donation to us. 

Cost of donations by text and what we receive

The amount you donated will be taken from your phone bill plus the cost of one text message at your standard network rate (usually 4p). So for example if you text DUK to 70123 to give £5 you will be charged £5.04. Diabetes UK will receive 100% of the donation.
