We are Diabetes UK. Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm. Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. More than dementia and cancer combined. That means we need to take action now.
Did you know that every day around 700 people are diagnosed with diabetes in the UK, that’s one person every two minutes? Almost 3.7 mil people have been diagnosed with Diabetes in the UK and 12.3 mil are at increased risk of Diabetes Type 2.
Because we’re the leading UK charity for people affected by diabetes it’s our responsibility to lead the fight against the growing crisis. And this fight is one that involves all of us – sharing knowledge and taking diabetes on together.
We do lots of different things, including providing information, advice and support, funding vital research, and campaigning to improve the quality of care and raise awareness of diabetes.
We have committed to invest £4.2 million into 13 new research projects across the UK. These include finding ways to stop the Type 1 immune attack, making the complications of diabetes less harmful, and finding the best ways to treat Type 2 diabetes.
All of this and more is only made possible through donations and by people supporting Diabetes UK.
Giveacar and its donors are proud supporters of Diabetes UK, as it provides information and advice to those in need.
