Student films about Type 1 diabetes in school

Created by 11-17 year olds as part of the2015 Diabetes in School Short Film Competition, these three-minute films show what life with Type 1 diabetes is really like for children and young people, and what care parents and teachers should expect at school.

You could use these videos by:

  • sending them to other families living with diabetes 
  • showing one in a school assembly 
  • sending them to people you know 
  • showing at any diabetes or education events to help inform teachers, school staff and volunteers.

Get in touch and let us know which videos you’re showing, we can provide downloads or DVD copies and let us know anything you’d like to see in future videos by emailing us
