Youth Diabetes Action’s governance – the Executive Committee – is made up of community members who volunteer their time and expertise. They guide staff in our projects and in monitoring the expenditure of the projects.

The Council approves and monitors

  • yearly plans, budgets, mid-year and annual financial reviews
  • sets guidelines on fundraising and grants, and
  • monitors whether these guidelines are being observed

YDA staff reports to the Executive Committee, YDA members and supporters via reports, Financial Statements, audit reports, annual report and YDA magazine.


The Youth Diabetes Action is run by our lean and mean team of 4 staff, responsible for members events and conferences, fundraising initiatives and maintaining a close relationship with the medical community. Their dedication is what brings us to where we are today.
