Holidays

Diabetes support made fun

A Diabetes UK support holiday or weekend is packed with fun activities. It's also a unique chance to spend time with people who really understand.

Many people find it's their first step to managing their own diabetes. Follow the links below to find out about our week-long children's adventure holidays and our family activity weekends.

 

Young people's holidays

Our week-long holidays are for young people with diabetes aged between 7 and 18 (you'll always be grouped with people your own age). They combine loads of activities with diabetes support and everyone who takes part has a great time.

Family weekends

Our weekend events are for young people with diabetes and their families - mums and dads, brothers and sisters and even grandparents! They're a mixture of discussion groups, learning sessions and fun activities.

"I’ve been on one of the holidays and got to meet other diabetics which made me feel happy as they know what it feels like. I couldn’t stop smiling :) "
