Nominate your 2023 diabetes hero! This is a special award, supported by Diabetes UK, which recognises someone very special who has supported/cared for people with diabetes in 2022.
This award will be presented to someone who is based in the UK or Ireland and is not a healthcare professional.

You may not nominate yourself.
Read about the 2022 winners:
Lochlan is 13 years old and has lived with type 1 diabetes since four. Lochlan is a keen and talented footballer who finds playing sport a way to escape from the daily hard work of living with type 1. Lochlan broke his leg aged 9 which led him to organise a Charity Event called Lochlan’s Stadium Marathon which he completed in April 2019 and raised £10,500 for JDRF and Kris Boyd Charity. The success led to Lochlan, aged 11, setting up Lochlan’s Legacy-SCIO. His own Charity which aims to raises awareness and understanding of Type 1 Diabetes, breaksdown barriers and reduce stigma. Lochlan prides himself on telling the truth about Type 1, the good and the bad. He wants all young people to have access to sport and ensure all coaches and referees have an understanding of the condition. What a 13 year old!
