Type 1 Quest
For 8-10 year olds (8-11 in Northern Ireland)
We know looking after a child with Type 1 can mean a lot of worry, especially when you’re not there with them. But we also know you don’t want your child to miss out on exciting adventures, sleepovers and school trips. Our Type 1 Quest is the perfect introduction to a few nights apart.Our healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses and dietitians – who volunteer at each event are on hand to give support with blood testing (including at night), insulin-giving and every other bit of diabetes care you normally provide.
During the days the children will be busy enjoying themselves. There is a whole range of exciting activities like kayaking and rock climbing to take part in, all while making new friends who also have Type 1.
And if a week apart seems too much, we have a Type 1 Quest which runs over a weekend during the October half term.
