Advocacy and Support
Do you have questions or need assistance with legal matters, workplace problems or other issues involving discrimination?
Diabetes NSW advocates on behalf of people living with and at risk of diabetes, their families and carers. If required, we refer people to the anti-discrimination board as well as offering diabetes education to the workplace to grow and develop understanding.
We are also passionate about lobbying government and other bodies about these issues, and similar, to gain a desirable outcome for people living with and at risk of diabetes. Follow this link to Diabetes Australia’s National Diabetes Strategy and Action Plan.
We also add our support to other causes where it’s needed. Such causes may include supporting the correction of health professional staff shortages, and any issues relating to health professional training – as we recognise how this will ultimately impact people living with and at risk of diabetes.
The latest media releases from Diabetes NSW can be found in our News section or by clicking here.
We have been supporting people for over 75 years!
