It all adds up to how we HELP.

Diabetes SA is a person-centred organisation.

In everything we do, we put people living with or at risk of diabetes first. 

Our Purpose

To reduce the risk and impact of diabetes in our community and to support people living with diabetes.

Our Values

Our organisation is founded on four values that guide everything we do.

Together they contain the what, how and why of Diabetes SA.

Together they express how we support each other and help everyone living with diabetes in South Australia.


We support you with clear, honest, factual information about diabetes, based on the latest research and real-life experience.


We support you with compassion, care and understanding. We’re here for you every step of the way.


We support you by taking the leading role in South Australia and beyond – in community engagement, awareness, advocacy and research.


We support you by being totally dedicated and passionate about what we do. We are committed to making life better for those in our community at risk or living with diabetes through awareness, early detection and prevention.

Honesty. Empathy. Leadership. Passion. It all adds up to Help.
