Diabetes Australia-NSW

Diabetes Australia-NSW [1] is the leading charity in Australia dealing with diabetes and the third oldest diabetes organisation in the world. It is the regional equivalent of the American Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK.

Founded in 1937 and based in Sydney, New South Wales (NSW), it helps Australians with diabetes by working to reduce the impact on their lives of the fastest growing chronic disease in the world.

It is a non-profit, non-government organisation, supported by members’ funds and donations. All funds raised are spent on research, education programs, public awareness and advocacy.

The Diabetes Australia-NSW Call Centre receives over 600 phone calls a day. Staff on-hand provide personalised and practical assistance to benefit people with diabetes and their carers. Diabetes Australia-NSW also administers the Australian government’s National Diabetes Services Scheme, which provides subsidised products to Australians who have diabetes.

Diabetes Australia-NSW is part of a federation of twelve organisations comprising the eight State and Territory Associations of Diabetes Australia, the Australian Diabetes Society, the Australian Diabetes Educators Association, the Kellion Diabetes Foundation and the Diabetes Research Foundation-Western Australia.
