Volunteer induction sessions

As a new Diabetes UK volunteer, you'll be invited to attend an induction. You'll meet the Volunteering Team, the Volunteer Development Manager and Volunteering Support Officer, all based in our regional office in Taunton.

The induction will cover the history of the charity, and Diabetes UK's ambitions for the future. You'll learn how vital our volunteers are in helping us to achieve our mission and vision - of a world where diabetes can do no harm.

Through the induction you'll discover which roles suit you best, and get an understanding of vacant roles in your area.

Volunteer Speakers

Our Speaker Volunteers are vital to helping people find out what they need to know about diabetes. They share the most up-to date information including what symptoms to look out for and how to prevent developing diabetes. They also talk through where people can go to get the correct advice and support.

We’ve seen a huge increase in requests for Speakers to attend events and meetings and are now looking to expand our team to keep up with demand.

If you are happy and confident speaking in public, sharing your knowledge and would like to join our speaker team, please register your interest for our training course.

Training dates

Training usually last three-hours, in the afternoon, from 1pm to 4pm.

Please contact us to register an interest in our volunteer induction and training program.

Community Champion Volunteers
