Working in partnership with Tesco

We're working with two other leading health charities and the leading food retailer to help tackle the UK’s biggest health challenges.

The partnership, 'Helping you to live healthier', brings together our skills, along with those of the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and Tesco, to help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.

Over the next five years, we'll work together to help Tesco’s 300,000 UK colleagues and millions of shoppers to make healthier habits. 

The partnership aims to inspire, empower and support Tesco colleagues, customers an their families to make healthier food choices and live healthier lives, bringing about measurable changes to the behaviours that can lower the risk of cancer, heart and circulatory diseases and type 2 diabetes.

Round up, round up!

This September from the 13th - 26th, Tesco will be giving customers a chance to round up their bill to support Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

Our partner, Tesco, will be appealing to customers to round up their baskets to the nearest £1 at self service checkouts when shopping in-store over the next two weeks. For the first time since the start of the pandemic, our incredible volunteers will also be helping to raise vital funds through collections at Tesco stores across the country. All funds raised will be split equally between us, Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation as part of our 'Helping you to live healthier' partnership.

Our partnership is making a difference 


With 12.3 million people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, we are working together to reduce this number. By helping more people understand their risk, we can help more people to reduce it. Find out more about how to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
