Tell us your story

By sending us your story, you agree that we may publish it on our website and e-newsletters, in our printed magazines and, in some cases, our campaign material.

We regret we cannot respond to every story submitted.

If you are not happy for your first name to be published, please let us know by selecting 'no' from the dropdown menu below. In some cases, we may contact you to ask for any additional details, or to talk about any changes we need to make.

You are under no obligation to answer all questions.

There may be occasions when the general media may be interested in your story or interviewing you about your diabetes. Further down the form, you are given the chance to say whether you would be happy to discuss this with the wider media.

No information will be passed on to the media without your permission, and we would always contact you first before giving your details to the media.

Keeping in touch
We'd love to keep you updated about how we support people living with diabetes and how you can help by donating, volunteering and campaigning. We'll stay in touch with you by post and phone. It helps us to keep our costs down if we can email you but it's entirely your choice.

Occasionally we may need to share personal data with our suppliers to process your orders and requests or to provide other services to us. We promise:

  • Never to release your personal details to another company for their marketing purposes
  • To always respect your communication preferences

We only want to send you relevant information and requests to support us. To do this we may analyse the information you provide and gather extra data. You can find out more about how we use your information at www.diabetes.org.uk/privacy.

You can change how you hear from us or ask us to stop communicating with you at any time:
