We Diabetes UK, the leading UK diabetes charity. Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. Those diagnosed face the risk of life-changing & life-limiting complications, unless they are given the best care & the support they need to manage their condition well. As a society we need to work together – take action now – to fund critical research, improve healthcare & treatment, and prevent yet more people developing this potentially life-threatening condition.
Our mission is that by bringing people together to work in partnership, we will support those living with diabetes, prevent Type 2 diabetes, make research breakthroughs, and ultimately find a cure.
How we do this:
•We listen to and work with people with diabetes, healthcare professionals and many others to drive change.
•We develop, deliver and champion the most effective ways for people to manage their diabetes, or their risk, so they can live their lives with confidence.
• We build a strong community of support that finds and shares the knowledge needed to fight diabetes.
Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm.
•We put people first
•We're driven to know more
•We make change happen
•We keep things simple
Diabetes UK aims to:
- Greater investment in research
- A transformation in diabetes care
- Reducing obesity & preventing Type 2 diabetes
- Helping everyone manage their diabetes
- A revolution in understanding and support and the best people and the best organisation
