Registered Charity No: 1058284 (England & Wales).
The Trust was set up in 1994 to listen, support and respond to the needs of people living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. As a charity we have grown through our members support, to be able to produce a wide variety of FREE resources. These resources include a range of information booklets about living with the condition, a helpline to offer support when needed and on-line resources that can also be downloaded.
We support all people in the diabetes community, not only in the UK but also worldwide. We collect insulin and diabetes supplies to send out to developing countries, helping support children and adults with diabetes, where they die without these vital supplies.
Diabetes is a complex condition that can cause severe complications, including sight loss, kidney failure and nerve damage leading to amputation. IDDT supports long-term research that aims to minimise the risk of these complications.
As a registered charity, IDDT relies entirely on voluntary donations. Any gifts or donations are always gratefully received and will always be put to the best possible use. Please make any gifts or donations to the ‘Diabetes Trust Research and Care Fund’.
