Every member makes a difference
Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of all people affected by, and at risk of, diabetes.
We are a growing community of 300,000 supporters nationwide: people with diabetes, their friends, family and volunteers.
Our members are at the heart of what we do. We support each other and share our experiences.
The generosity of our members also enables us to fund essential care, services and research to help improve the lives of everyone affected by diabetes.
By standing with us, our members make us a far more powerful force as we campaign to ensure that diabetes care and research remain at the heart of the nation’s conversation about health.
All the information you need
In order to best support you we ask a few questions about the way in which you are affected by diabetes, whether that be you, or someone close to you. This helps us provide relevant information that helps you: for example, we ask which membership publication you would like. In the case of a parent with a child with diabetes we ask that you tick the "parent guide" option so that we can send you the information that is most helpful to you.
We want as many people as possible to receive the benefits of membership, and need as many people as possible to support our work – and you can do this today for as little as £1.50 each month.
