Swindon to host meetup for young people with diabetes

Aged 16-26 and living with Type 1 diabetes? Join us at #TheBig1.

Do you want to meet other young people who understand what it’s like to live with Type 1 diabetes? If so, join us at #TheBig1 on Saturday, 16 June 2018 at Swindon Town Football Club.

#TheBig1 is a relaxed day out that’s all about you. Meet other people your age and get chatting about the things you care about. Like how to keep on top of your diabetes when you’re backpacking, the best way to bring up diabetes on a date, how to cope with the days you feel rubbish or how to make sure diabetes doesn’t get in the way of having a great time.

You’ll get to share tips and support (as well as those awkward stories) with other young people who know exactly where you’re coming from.

#TheBig1 runs from 10.30am-4pm, and lunch and snacks will be provided.

Anyone aged 16-26 with Type 1 diabetes can come along. You can even bring a plus one if you want. If you’re under 18, you’ll need to have an over 18 with you.
