Event description: Diabetes UK has been organising family events for many years. They are committed to providing families who have a child with diabetes with support, information and the opportunities to share experiences and to discuss both emotional and practical issues around living with diabetes. At the same time they offer safe and expert care for children when they are taking part in their own activities. Families get to share their experiences in an informal environment and are given a large amount of support. The weekend gives parents and children the opportunity to gain the skills, confidence and knowledge to live with and self manage diabetes. These family events are run by a team of carefully selected volunteers who are healthcare professionals and/or have experience of diabetes or childcare. All volunteers delivering our events receive full training, provide written references and undergo criminal records checks, as well as having strict child to volunteer ratios. Very special rates are negotiated with the hotels to ensure that we get the best facilities at competitive prices for all our needs during our stay. Price: £140 per participant aged 14 years + £90 per child (up to 13 years). Note there is a bursary scheme available for some families as cost can be an issue. The weekend is open to families with children of all ages. This includes accommodation in a comfortable hotel, food and refreshments, snacks, activities and trips out.
