Diabetes Jobs and Volunteering Skip to main content

Every penny really does count.


You are here


We need you:

We are always keen to hear from people looking for volunteering opportuities. If you would like to be one of our Diabetes Volunteers to join our nationwide volunteering team you can commit to helping as little or often as you would like.

The aim of a Diabetes Volunteer:

You can help us by undertaking a range of different activities, across the country and play an integral part in supporting people living with diabetes.

Some of the activities our volunteers are involved in are:

  • Fundraising for DRWF by organising an event in your local community, place of work or social group, such as a quiz, bike ride or maybe a dress down day. 
  • Introducing our free literature to your local GP surgery
  • Helping with our online work, such as social media or being a moderator on our forum
  • Arranging "a walk for diabetes"
  • Volunteering at our Diabetes Wellness Events
  • Promoting Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation in various ways, such as speaking to people about us, sharing information on social media, etc.

What’s in it for you?

Volunteering is a great way to enhance your life whether you are in work or retired. You will gain new skills by undertaking new tasks, you can also gain exposure to a variety of different environments.

It’s also great opportunity to meet likeminded people and establish long term friendships!

Diabetes Professional Care & Novo Nordisk Volunteers

The charity was delighted to receive support from Novo Nordisk at the recent Diabetes Professional Care (DPC) event in London. Volunteers and staff took part in a static cycle challenge with real time statistics available on their performance. 

Novo Nordisk pledged to pay £1 for every kilometre cycled. A total of 391 kilometres was clocked up and Novo Nordisk was able to double this via The Christmas Challenge at The Big Give to £782.
