An important part of the work we do is advocating for all people who live with diabetes.
Diabetes Tasmania advocates for people with and at risk of diabetes in the following ways:
- We provide support for individuals who experience discrimination due to their condition. Please call 6215 9000 or contact us via email, if you would like to speak with our Health and Advocacy Manager about advocacy support.
- We work actively with Diabetes Australia to lobby the Federal Government on behalf of people with diabetes.
- We lobby the State Government to support people with, or at risk of diabetes.
- We advocate among community organisations, local government and other health organisations to raise awareness of diabetes and its impact on Tasmanians.
