Type 1 Events

Our Type 1 Family Weekenders are on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Register your interest in attending and we’ll contact you as soon as we have more information.

If you or someone you know would like to volunteer at a Family Weekender in the future, you can also still apply.

In the meantime, if you’re a parent of carer of a child with type 1, you can join Type 1 Event Virtual Q&A Panel Sessions to hear from people living with type 1.


Type 1 Event Q&A Panel Sessions

Join us at our Q&A panel sessions to hear the personal experiences of people living with type 1 diabetes. You’ll be able to ask them any questions you have about what it’s really like to live with diabetes, and find out their biggest challenges and how they stay positive. The panellists are very open and happy to share their stories about growing up with type 1. 

Our next panel is for young people aged 13-17, who are living with type 1 diabetes. You'll hear from our panel of 15-21 year olds, who'll share their own experiences and answer your questions about the highs and lows of life with type 1.

Duration: 45 minutes

Cost: The sessions are free of charge

The next session is:

Teenage and type 1 – Monday, 17 May, 7pm - 7.45pm

Book your place now

If you’re unable to attend these sessions, complete the form and we’ll let you know when more sessions are announced.

After you’ve signed up, you’ll be sent a link and a password to access the session via Zoom. You can use this on your smart phone, or on a computer or laptop if it has speakers.

You won’t be able to use your microphone or camera, but you’ll be able to ask us questions during the panel through the Q&A function. If you don’t have access to an internet connection, we’ll provide you with a phone number to dial in and listen to the call.
