Our dream is to find a cure for all types of diabetes.

With 4.9 million people now living with diabetes in the UK, our research and awareness programmes are becoming even more crucial to help people living with diabetes.

Our work relies on our amazing fundraisers, sponsors and volunteers who share our vision for a world without diabetes. If you would like to get involved, we have plenty of fun and rewarding opportunities for you.

By getting involved with our work, you can help our dream become a reality.
