Where your money goes

At DRWF we aim to support people with diabetes by raising awareness, providing support and funding vital research to ensure everyone living with diabetes is "staying well until a cure is found..."

What we do 

Every year we fund diabetes research in the UK & around the world in order to understand the causes, prevention, treatment and management of the condition. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure.

Our first research award was made in 1999 for a small equipment grant. Since then we have committed more than £12 million to diabetes research in the UK and around the world. 

We raise awareness of all forms of diabetes so that people may take preventative actions and access the right support and guidance. 

We also host events every year to ensure that people take a pro-active approach to wellness and self-care, to reduce the risk of complications and enhance quality of life.

The money we raise helps us get closer to our vision of a world without diabetes.

Any gift, large or small, can make a significant difference to our work and will be very much appreciated.
