DRWF’s Diabetes Wellness Days support people living with all forms of diabetes. The days include an educational event programme that brings together a wealth of information under one roof, useful for those living with the condition as well as their family members, carers and friends.
New for 2019 is a Diabetes Wellness Family Camp for young people with Type 1 diabetes in partnership with Over The Wall, a charity offering free therapeutic recreation camps for children and young people living with health challenges. The camp will run from 7-9 June in Wiltshire.
Allan Jolly, Head of Partnerships and Evaluation at Over The Wall, says of the event, “This exciting partnership with DRWF means that some children and young people living with diabetes can access a transformational therapeutic recreation camp programme free of charge.”
Sarah Tutton, DRWF Chief Executive, adds, “This a new, fun event for families with children living with Type 1. Qualified volunteers will run all the activities the camp has to offer so, parents, guardians, and siblings can relax and enjoy the weekend knowing that the children and young people are all looked after.”
