Become more confident living with Diabetes 

Diabetes UK are running a Family Weekend in Ashford on 1-3 April.

The event is open to families, including parents and grandparents, and children with Type 1 diabetes along with their siblings. Places are still available, information on prices and how to book can be obtained by following the link attached. By simply clicking on ‘Ashford Family Event’ – all the information you need and the link to book is there.


These highly successful and informative events have been running for a number of years and are tailored to meet the needs of families with Type 1 diabetes – all family members are welcome!

What can you expect from this weekend?

This well organised event will include workshops for parents and other adults as well as plenty of activities for children, including a trip out. Plenty of support is available for families living with Type 1 diabetes, ranging from informal chats with other adults and sharing experiences, to more specific professional advice from the team of Healthcare Professionals. The children are in good hands while adults are busy thanks to a team of volunteers who are experienced in diabetes and /or childcare.

This event really is a golden opportunity for families with Type 1 diabetes to have questions answered, receive support and have fun at the same time.
