About reporting progress and impact

Reporting progress

We require an annual and final report on the progress of your grant. These are linked to the financial cycle of the grant and should be submitted via our online grants management system. 

Every year of your grant, you will be required to submit an annual report within six weeks of the anniversary of your award. Failure to do so will result in suspension of further payments. 

If your grant is running for 12 months or less, or you are in the final year of your grant, we require a final report with a financial summary, signed by both the grant holder and the institutes finance office, within six weeks of the end of the grant.

The final report must be submitted via the online grants management system. The final quarterly payment is automatically withheld until receipt and approval of the final report. 

Please note that annual and final reports should detail progress adequately and the Diabetes UK Research Team may ask for more information before accepting an annual or final report. 

You must also acknowledge Diabetes UK in all publications arising from the awarded grant and provide copies of those publications. Please refer to section 8 of our Grant Conditions for further information. 

Please also note that our supporters raise funds for our research, and that prompt reporting of progress is essential so we can feed back to our supporters. 

Communicating about your research

Our Research Communications team is here to help bring your research closer to people living with and affected by diabetes, to make sure they are inspired by your work and aware of the impact of their donations. We can share your latest news and help to raise the profile of your research via the media, our website, social media, newsletters and magazines. 

As noted in the Diabetes UK grant conditions, please get in touch with us straight away if you have research that you are about to publish. This will allow us to consider the best way to disseminate your work and give us time to prepare communications. Please do not wait for your annual report to let us know. 

If you have begun working with your institution’s press office to publicise your research, please also let us know as early as possible.  

Diabetes UK also submits all research projects in the Europe PubMed Central open-access repository, a platform for worldwide access to life science publications and preprints. 

For support with any of the above, please contact the team at

How we measure impact

We’re currently scoping how best to collect our impact data and will be sure to update Diabetes UK-funded researchers of our decisions in due course.
