The Diabetes Care Trust is a charity that is dedicated to help people with diabetes, particularly Type1 Diabetes, who often need the help and care of diabetes specialists. We deal with the practical problems that affect everyday life and help people to live successfully and safelywith their condition. The projects that we support are ones where success can be measured in a straightforward way and there is usually a relatively quick outcome. We are also involved in monitoring the safety and effectiveness of pharmaceutical and technological treatments for diabetes. Examples of the projects that we have supported illustrate this.
