Supporting people in Kent & Medway living with diabetes

The Paula Carr Diabetes Trust is an independent charitable trust supporting people in Kent & Medway living with diabetes.

The Trust was started in 1989 in memory of Paula Carr, who was born in Ashford on 5 June 1975. Paula was diagnosed with diabetes in 1984 at the age of nine and learned how to cope with insulin injections and to balance her blood sugar levels.

Tragically though, Paula died following a hypoglycaemic episode as she slept on 18 April 1988, two months short of her thirteenth birthday.

Paula’s family have helped and supported the charity since it was set up.
