helping people live with diabetes.

Diabetes UK’s vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm. They strive tirelessly to campaign for and support everyone affected by diabetes and fund research that will one day lead to a cure.

Diabetes is the UK’s biggest growing health crisis. Diabetes UK set out to develop a web platform strategy to increase engagement with members of the public, health professionals and strategic Healthcare and Government partners. Within this, Diabetes UK identified the need for online health education for all people across the UK living with diabetes to enable them to better manage their condition.

Through Discovery and Alpha phases, we carried out user research to identify and understand users and their needs, designing and testing personas and key user journeys as well as reviewing and auditing existing content and IA to identify gaps.
