Diabetes is a global issue that requires collective solution finding.

Whilst DRWF is an independent, autonomous charity working for the benefit of people with diabetes in the UK, we also work internationally with sister organisations in the US, France, Sweden, Finland and Norway.

Under the umbrella of the International Diabetes Wellness Network, we work together on global awareness and educational campaigns and collaborate on international research funding projects.

Collectively, since the first DRWF group was established in 1993 in the US, we have committed more than 60 million euros to awareness, education and research funding. 

Our network currently operates in the following countries: 

In the United Kingdom - Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF)

USA - Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) 

France -Association pour la recherche sur le diabète

Sweden - Diabetes Wellness Sverige

Finland - Diabetes Wellness Suomi Säätiö

Norway - Stiftelsen Diabetes Wellness Norge

How We Can Help at DRWF


Each year we run events for people living with diabetes, ranging from educational workshops and wellness events, to fundraising marathons and group skydives. To find out more about our events and how we support people living with diabetes, please visit our Events Page.


Since 1998 we have provided over £12 million of funding for medical research programmes, with the aim of finding a cure for all types of diabetes. In 2004, we made a significant commitment to Islet Cell Research and Transplant, a programme which focuses on the role of islet cells in diabetes. Read more about our commitment to research by visiting our Research Page.


We rely on our amazing donors who raise the funds that help support people living with diabetes across the UK, as well as funding our vital research programmes. There are lots of ways to raise money to support people living with all forms of diabetes, there’s something for everyone!
