World Diabetes Day

World diabetes day banner

World Diabetes Day is on 14 November every year. It's a day when millions of people around the world come together to raise awareness of diabetes.

Celebrate your #DiabetesFamily

This World Diabetes Day we’re celebrating everyone who makes your life that little bit easier every day. We know how important it is to have support around you when you’re living with diabetes. Whether that’s a family member, a friend or even your neighbour down the road.

And we're saying happy birthday to our online diabetes family. It's the 10th birthday of our online forum – a space to share experiences, ask questions and get tips. If you want to extend your diabetes family or support network, join the forum today and connect with people all over the UK who are living with diabetes.

World Diabetes Day resources for you

Help us celebrate and raise awareness by holding your very own World Diabetes Day event. Put up posters, decorate with bunting and give information about diabetes out to the people who need it.
