We are now stronger than ever for our members
Recently members of Diabetes Queensland voted YES to becoming part of Diabetes Australia.
This was a really positive decision as it means members now have the best of both worlds. You will continue to have access to the local events, services and information that you value so much, while being part of a large and strong national organisation working for all people living with diabetes.
As Diabetes Queensland is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Diabetes Australia, instead of renewing your membership with us you are being invited to join Diabetes Australia. This is something we are legally required to do.
As your local branch, Diabetes Queensland will manage your membership on behalf of Diabetes Australia and we’ll continue to host events, answer your questions and provide you with tips and advice through Circle magazine and our newsletters. Diabetes Australia will also be working for all members by:
- advocating with all levels of government on issues important to the diabetes community,
- supporting diabetes research,
- providing a supportive community, that connects you to others living with diabetes, and
- delivering events and information to help you manage your diabetes and live well.

Flexible payment options
To save you time and give you flexibility with your membership payments you now have the option of paying in monthly or annual instalments directly from a credit or debit card.
Choosing a flexible payment option will take the hassle out of remembering to renew your membership each year. It also has the added benefit of reducing our overheads, ensuring more funds go into services for the diabetes community.
You can take advantage of these flexible payment options when you join online or over the phone.
Be part of a community that cares
We are excited about building a powerful and unified organisation dedicated to supporting people living with or at risk of diabetes. We hope you decide to remain a part of our caring community by joining Diabetes Australia.
