UK social enterprise™ Ltd would like to be your partner in preventing the deadly complications of diabetes.

Our partnership website with our partners is written by experienced diabetes patients, to help: 

  • Those at risk of diabetes avoid getting it, and
  • Other diabetes patients learn more, better self-manage and improve their health; and, at the same time, cut public health service costs.
