In 2012 Diabetes UK Cymru held two important family events in Bangor and Cardiff for families living with diabetes in Wales.
The aim of the events was to support families living with diabetes in Wales. The interactive one day program provided unique, informative and fun activities that focused on the impact of diabetes upon the families’ lives.
The events also provided the opportunity for families to share experiences whilst developing skills and confidence in managing the day to day challenges of diabetes. Diabetes UK worked with Getting Sorted, an award winning project based at Leeds Metropolitan University.
The self care model program they have developed assists young people and their families to take control of their diabetes. You can find more information on “Getting Sorted” and the excellent work they are currently undertaking on their website: http://www.leedsmet.ac.uk/gettingsorted/

Following the success of both Family Events in Wales this year, Diabetes UK is planning to hold further events in 2013. For more information please click here
