Our volunteers bring skills, experience, energy, enthusiasm and commitment to Diabetes UK. Volunteering can make a big difference in your life too, giving you a brilliant opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.

Volunteer Week Thank You
It's Volunteers Week , the annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK and Diabetes UK will be raising awareness of the huge contribution made by the hundreds of people who volunteer with us.
We are also encouraging others to get involved and make a difference for people living with diabetes.
Diabetes is the fastest growing health threat today. In the UK, there are more than 4.5 million people who have diabetes of which over 1 million people have Type 2 diabetes but don’t know they have it and around 11.9 million adults are at at increased risk of developing Type 2. Its impact and complications can be devastating, causing blindness, amputations, even early death.
Our volunteers really are at the centre of everything we do. They not only help us support people affected by diabetes in communities up and down the country, they also help us raise vital funds to fund a huge range of research projects. In addition, they campaign with us to improve diabetes care, and so much more.
So we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our brilliant volunteers. We’re incredibly grateful for the contribution they make and without them we couldn’t achieve the amazing work we do in North West.
