The Diabetes Federation of Ireland was born after a public meeting in 1967. The organisation was initially registered as a charity called the Irish Diabetic Association and was based in the front room of a house in Clontarf, Dublin, until it moved to Lower Gardiner St, Dublin 1 where it remains today.
Since 1967 the Diabetes Federation of Ireland has been dedicated to helping people with diabetes. Through its network of support branches throughout the country, people who have an interest in diabetes are dedicated to sourcing and sharing information on diabetes and related matters.
To provide a quality service in improving the lives of people affected by diabetes, and working with others to prevent and cure diabetes.
