Inspire your community to join the fight against diabetes
As a local group you can engage, motivate and encourage the people in your area in a way that we can't. And as our champions of the cause in your community you've got a real opportunity to raise vital funds as well as awareness of diabetes, our services and supporting local people.
We can't continue our work without fundraising and there's so much left to do. See here how your support could make a difference (PDF, 291KB) and get in touch to find out all the ways you can fundraise as a local group. You're a vital part of our fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Fundraise your way
Fundraising is a chance to be creative and enjoy yourself
But it also brings together the people we desperately need to reach to end the harm caused by all types of diabetes.
We'll help you organise a fundraiser, your way, to inspire your community to join the fight against diabetes.
See our fundraising pack below and contact your local fundraiser for support in planning your event.
Take part in a fundraising event for Diabetes UK
Whether you want to take part yourselves, encourage your community to sign up or volunteer on the day, get involved and soak up the atmosphere.
Contact the events team to find out more, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding diabetes research
The choice is yours
Adopt a project is an opportunity for your local group to directly contribute to the research projects that are important to you.
Groups that raise £1,000 or more can take part in the scheme. See our latest adopt a project brochure below and contact your Area Administrator for more information on getting involved.
One day we'll find a cure to diabetes, but without research we can't make that a reality.
We've got what you need
For fundraising materials get in touch with your Area Administrator.
