Edinburgh Type 1 Weekender

Friday 03 November 2017 - Sunday 05 November 2017

This is a Type 1 Weekender.

Price:

£140 per participant (aged 18 and over)

£90 per child (up to and including age 17)

The price includes accommodation in a comfortable hotel, food and refreshments, snacks, activities and trips out


These events are for the whole family and offer a dual activity programme for parents/carers and children with Type 1 as well as their siblings. The parents programme will include group discussions with healthcare professionals, small workshops with other parents and carers, information on the future of diabetes and, above all, the unique opportunity to talk with people who also have children with diabetes.

The children will have a full and exciting timetable of activities, which will include a trip out to a fun location and a series of indoor/outdoor games, all supervised by our trained volunteers, including healthcare professionals. For children aged 0-4 years there are crèche facilities. 

Meals are usually buffet-style and taken in family groups. Our dietitians will have been to the hotel in advance and discussed menus and food with them so the dietitians will be able to advise on ingredients used, carb counting etc. Mealtimes are an integral part of the event, for many children this will be the first time that they get to see other children injecting and many children inject for the first time, try new injection sites or gain in confidence during a Type 1 Weekender. 

The event runs from Friday afternoon until Sunday lunch. Further information on arrival times, where to go and what to bring will be sent out once your family’s place has been confirmed and nearer to the time of the event.
