Management Team – Roles, Responsibilities & Remuneration

DigiBete CIC is a not for profit, social enterprise with the main objective of providing much needed, digital resources for children and young people with Type 1 Diabetes. Developed in partnership with Leeds Children’s Hospital Paediatric Diabetes Team, the award-winning DigiBete platform offers awareness, education, training and support to the Type 1 community, free to use, when required. DigiBete has also developed a Clinic and Patient support app which is supported by the NHS and widely used by paediatric diabetes clinicians across the country to help them support their patients.

The core management team of DigiBete consists of 3 executive directors and 3 non-executive directors assisted by a key team of community engagement and support staff, parent representatives and clinicians.

The 3 executive directors, Maddie and Rob Julian and John Hughes along with the core staff team members, are paid to manage the DigiBete platform and DigiBete App on a day to day basis, supporting our community of more than 100,000 users.  The three executive directors are founding shareholders of the community interest company.

The 3 non-executive directors, Dr Fiona Campbell, Caroline Mullier and Frances Hanson, are employed by Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust and allowed to spend a designated amount of time supporting DigiBete CIC. They provide essential clinical guidance, oversight and clinical approval to the content and resources provided. They hold no shares in the CIC, receive no remuneration from DigiBete and have no other financial interest.

Our parent representatives also provide their services on a voluntary basis.
