About Us

Diabetes Australia in NSW & ACT

Diabetes Australia is the national body for the 1.5 million Australians diagnosed with diabetes as well as those at risk. We are committed to reducing the impact of all types of diabetes. Diabetes Australia works in partnership with people with diabetes, health professionals and researchers.

In NSW and the ACT we work to improve the day-to-day lives of people living with diabetes. We aim to make things easier by providing access to education, information, programs and services designed to help people better manage their diabetes.

We provide trusted information, advice and support through:

  • Our free contact centre – 1800 177 055
  • Educational health and wellbeing programs and services
  • Information days, workshops and other events
  • Publications and resources

Our prevention and awareness activities contribute to reducing the development of diabetes and the complications for those living with it.

How your donation will help

Supporting the diabetes community in the ACT

Your donation to the Canberra Day Appeal will help Diabetes Australia provide even more support and make a difference to over 20,000 people living with diabetes in the ACT, as well as those at risk of diabetes, their families and carers, health providers, researchers, and the community.

Diabetes Australia will be able to deliver more support through initiatives such as:

  • The Diabuddies program, which helps connect and educate children and teens with type 1 diabetes and their families through face to face and online events.
  • The Diabetes Counselling Service.
  • Working across all levels of government to represent the views of people living with diabetes in all types of public debates and discussions.
  • Diabetes Australia Research Program, which supports and develops outstanding diabetes research in Australia. We do this by funding a range of grants across the full spectrum of diabetes research through a merit based, competitive, peer review process. Research projects can focus on prevention, management of diabetes or the cure for diabetes.
  • Diabetes educational programs and resources offered through Diabetes Qualified - a solution for health professionals wanting to access the latest diabetes education and resources all in one place. 

On behalf of the diabetes community, we say thank you for your support.
