About Diabetes UK Care Events

For over 65 years Diabetes UK has been providing people living with diabetes unique opportunities to share and learn from each other in a relaxed and safe environment on our Care Events.

The Care Events run throughout the year, all across the UK and are aimed at Children, Young People, Adults and Families living with diabetes. There is a programme of Summer residential events for Children, Family Weekends and one day events for Adults in the Autumn.

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Tesco for 2015 which will mean we are able to deliver an extra 15 events across the year, engage with more members of Diabetes UK and support more people with diabetes to connect with each other.

Applications for our 2015 events are open
