Diabetes UK is the UK’s leading charity for people affected by diabetes. Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm.

We campaign with and for people with diabetes to improve the quality of care across the UK’s health services.

We are the UK’s largest charitable funder of diabetes research, funding pioneering research into care, cure and prevention for all types of diabetes.

  • We work together with our network of over 10,000 professional members and diabetes specialists, we share knowledge to improve the lives of people with diabetes.
  • We work to halt the rising number of people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes by educating them about their risk, encouraging early diagnosis and promoting simple lifestyle changes to help prevent or delay its onset.

Gifts in Wills are extremely important to Diabetes UK. Around a third of Diabetes UK funding comes from gifts in Wills, so future research relies on them.


A gift in your Will will make a better future for people living with diabetes. One day your gift could lead to a cure for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. What better legacy could you leave to future generations?
