What happens at Family Events?
Diabetes UK Family Events are designed to support families to share their experiences, learn new things and become more confident living with diabetes. These events have been successfully running for many years and are tailored to meet the needs of families with Type 1 diabetes. Parents, carers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, as well as children with diabetes and their siblings are all welcome along.
Whilst adults are attending the workshops, children will be supported by a team of carefully selected volunteers who are healthcare professionals and/or have experience of diabetes or childcare.
Our 2016 events have now finished. Watch this space for the launch of our 2017 programme of events.
