Meet our wonderful supporters

Meet Robert

Robert and his late wife Janice have had a personal connection with Diabetes Victoria since Robert was diagnosed with diabetes in 2008.

Robert told us that he and Janice made the decision to leave 5% of their estate to Diabetes Victoria to ensure that Diabetes Victoria could help  someone else the same way they’ve helped me.

This enabled them to give back to a cause they care about, whilst ensuring that their family were still provided for.
This is their story, watch it here.

With your help, we can change lives ... 

Every day 90 Victorians develop diabetes… making it the fastest growing chronic condition in our state. Our goal of reducing the impact of diabetes in the Victorian community is complex and challenging and we need your help. By arranging a gift in your will to Diabetes Victoria it ensures our work with researchers, universities, hospitals, health service providers, corporate partners, community organisations and people with diabetes will continue and helps maximise our future impact.

By 2026, over 500,000 Victorians will be diagnosed with diabetes. With support and resources, diabetes can be well managed, and people affected by diabetes can live long, healthy and happy lives. Our need for your support has never been greater.
