I came across a great volunteering scheme yesterday – Fight Diabetes in Your Community’. 

Diabetes Champions are based in GP practices and are there for people at risk of Type 2 Diabetes. 

If you have experience of living with Type 2 Diabetes or are supporting someone with the condition and are able to volunteer one day a week, then you are encouraged to get in touch. 

Volunteers are given high-quality training and development support, regular team catch-ups and meals, TEMPO time credits to use in London businesses and attractions and a chance to make a real difference in your community.

The scheme is looking for volunteers who are passionate about fighting Diabetes and willing to volunteer three to six hours a week. They are seeking people who are friendly, warm and non-judgmental, with great people skills and who are organised, punctual and reliable.
