Actions to Impact Volunteer

If you would like to get involved but are worried about how much time you can give, then our Actions to Impact micro-volunteering role is something you can do to raise awareness of diabetes and spread our message that diabetes is relentless.

Small actions can make a big impact! So if you could help us to share our key messages and raise awareness of diabetes, our local team would love to hear from you!

As the UK’s leading diabetes charity, it’s our job to tackle the diabetes crisis. We’re here to prevent Type 2 diabetes, campaign for and support everyone affected by diabetes, and fund research that will one day lead us to a cure.

Our volunteers are at the heart of all we do. Without your support, we could not carry out important work in research, education and care which is vital to our vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. Volunteers extend the reach of our organisation and work to deliver our strategy, connecting with communities across the UK.
