Diabetes Jersey is the Island’s only diabetes charity and is registered with the Jersey Charity Commission (No.110).

Raising awareness of diabetes amongst the general population, prevention of diabetes and education are key objectives. Through these efforts the charity aims to improve the lives of all those living with diabetes in Jersey and all members of the general committee give of their time freely.
