’Staying well until a cure is found.....’

The Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) is a registered charity (No. 1070607), established in 1998 to raise public awareness to this chronic, long-term condition and its associated complications, treatment, avoidance and relief and to provide support to people living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Whilst funding vital diabetes research to establish the causes; develop improved management and treatment options; and ultimately find a cure, we aim to ensure that people have access to the right information and support to develop a proactive self-care approach to successful self-management, to ensure that they are ’staying well until a cure is found....’

With an increasing number of people being diagnosed each year, our work is more important than ever before and at DRWF we rely on the generosity of our supporters to enable us to fund researchers working towards a brighter tomorrow. We are also working hard to help people living with the condition avoid developing such debilitating complications as blindness, kidney failure and heart disease.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, in just over ten years DRWF has committed over £9.8 million to research in the UK. But we can’t afford to look backwards. We need to do more if we are to stop diabetes becoming one of the 21st century’s greatest medical problems.

In 2014, 89.6p out of every £1 spent went on charitable activities (only 1p is spent on running the charity and other costs) and for every £1 spent on fundraising, £9.90 was raised. 

Until the dedicated researchers we fund are successful in finding a cure, we will remain committed to developing education programmes which raise awareness to diabetes risks and promote healthy living.  

By remembering us in your Will, you can help us provide the support on which thousands of people have come to rely and continue funding the research that we hope will one day make diabetes a thing of the past.

Thank you.
