Diabetes is the fastest growing and potentially most devastating health crisis of our time. It affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK.

This morning millions of people in the UK woke up to face another day managing their diabetes. Every two minutes someone new is diagnosed with this health condition.

Diabetes UK focuses on funding projects that will have the most benefit for people living with diabetes, and those that could get us closer to a cure. Our researchers are discovering new and better ways to treat all forms of diabetes and learning more about what causes it and how it works. We now understand more about the condition than we ever have, which means we’re closer to curing it than ever. We are making progress through research. But we still have a way to go.

Around a third of Diabetes UK funding comes from gifts in Wills, so future research relies on them. With a gift in your Will we can fund more research and shape diabetes care, treatment and prevention now and in the future.
