Diabetes NSW is Australia’s largest member based non-profit organisation dedicated to people living with or at risk of diabetes. Our priority is their health and well-being, enabling them to live their lives well through positive support and education – every step of the way.
As well as helping to prevent diabetes, its complications and improve people’s lives on a day-to-day basis, we support crucial research into finding better treatments and a cure for diabetes.
Support and Community
Diabetes NSW provides instant, trusted information, advice and support from health professionals for people living with diabetes and their families and carers. Our community of over 48,000 members creates a sense of belonging, providing people the opportunity to share experiences and collaborate to support their peers.
Health and Education Services
Diabetes NSW provides continuous educational health and well-being programmes designed to provide up-to-date knowledge and information to people living with diabetes, boosting their confidence and ability to live a healthy life. We also deliver comprehenisive diabetes education to allied health professionals who work in the primary and hospital settings. Our prevention awareness activities, such as education, advice and support contribute to reduce both the development of diabetes and the complications of the disease in those already living with it.
Research and Advocacy
Diabetes NSW has supported the establishment of a dedicated, ground-breaking research programme looking to find better treatments for diabetes and eventually a cure. As a leading voice for people living with diabetes and their family and carers, we are well positioned to represent their views at all levels of government and in all types of public discussion.
