Turn to us

Together we'll turn your diabetes around.


No one has to tackle the challenges of diabetes alone. For almost 50 years, we have helped over 50,000 Queenslanders get more from life by providing them with the right tools and support they need to manage their diabetes.


Being a member of Diabetes Queensland connects you with one of Australia's largest diabetes community, their families, carers, supporters and health professionals. Diabetes Queensland is more than an organisation; we are a community of passionate people dedicated to improving the lives of people living with diabetes.


Alison Bennett - Dietitian

"I feel incredibly privileged to be working for an organisation so passionate about supporting people living with diabetes. Diabetes can be difficult to navigate and overwhelming at times, I consider the work we do as providing a clear pathway through the confusion. Whether it's criss-crossing the state to roll out programs or providing accurate and trusted information over the helpline, we are always doing our very best to ensure that people living with diabetes, their families and health care teams can turn to us."

 

Ross Lavelle - Helpline support

"Diabetes Queensland is like my family.  I have worked here for more than three years now and I really enjoy being part of the customer service team. It is such a busy area, with hundreds of calls coming through every day.  No call is ever the same and I get a real buzz from being able to help people find the information and support they need."

"My role at Diabetes Queensland never really feels like 'work'. Each day I look forward to collaborating within a team which passionately seeks to improve the health and wellness of all people living with diabetes. I enjoy bringing my knowledge of food and exercise together to teach and motivate people to live a long, healthy and happy life."

 

Fleur Cross - Credentialled Diabetes Educator

"As someone with a strong family history, I have always been passionate about supporting people living with diabetes.  Being able to meet people, hear their stories and empower them with trusted and accurate information to take charge of their well-being is the best part of my job."
