We are a charity that needs on-going financial support to continue providing our information, support and awareness raising activities.
Diabetes Wellington is a not for profit organisation that has been in existence since 1960 for the purpose of helping people with diabetes.
We do this is in a variety of ways all with the aim of providing information and support. This includes a Diabetes Information Centre, a Field Officer service, supermarket tours, cooking classes and education classes. We cover Wellington, Hutt Valley, Porirua and the Kapiti Coast.
We aim to assist people with diabetes to gain self management skills to live with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, and we also recognise that the family of those people with diabetes will also need information about the condition that their family member has.
We raise all of our funds from grant applications, fundraising, a small paid membership fee, and also donations. We need financial support for our services as we are always open to the public and also carry out a number of awareness raising activities.
If you or a person that you know has diabetes, then making a donation to us, helps us to provide our services and continues to support people with diabetes live successful lives.
