Wills & Legacies

We understand that making a will is a very personal decision and your loved ones come first.


Some people do choose to leave a gift to a cause that is close to them or their loved ones. Choosing to leave a gift in your will to Diabetes Ireland can make a massive difference to those living in Ireland with diabetes and bring us nearer to a cure. A gift, no matter how big or small can help us make a difference.


Diabetes Ireland is the national charity dedicated to helping people by providing care, education, support and motivation to the 225,000 Irish people affected by diabetes and their families and those at risk of developing diabetes. Diabetes Ireland also raises public awareness of diabetes, its symptoms, risk factors for type 2 diabetes and funds research into finding a cure for diabetes.


We are a registered charity that is very heavily dependent on voluntary donations to fund its services.  The charity was established in 1967 and today provides a full range of services to the diabetes community.


Previous gifts have enabled us to open two Diabetes Care Centres in Dublin and Cork and we hope to open more in the future. Our Care Centres offer rapid and easy access to professional footcare, eyecare, dietetic and counselling services.


The Centres also act as a local resource for people seeking support and information on the many facets of diabetes. It is especially important for those newly diagnosed who may be waiting on their first hospital appointment and for those living with the condition for years who may need some additional support to manage their condition more effectively.


For more information on making a will, you can read our ‘Leaving a Legacy for Living’ booklet. To speak in total confidence, without obligation about the possibilities of leaving a legacy to Diabetes Ireland, please contact Kieran on 01 8428118 or email [email protected]
