Family Support

Events for the whole family to enjoy


The Type1 Foundation understands the importance of connecting with other families who also live with a child with Type 1 Diabetes. The reality for many children living with Type1 Diabetes is that they haven't socialised with another child also living with the disease. The Type 1 Foundation aims to support families in a way that is not already accessible. As the long term outcomes for a family is immeasurable. These events also give children living with Type1 Diabetes an opportunity to connect and establish friendships with each other. Parents are also able to network and many state they have make lifelong connections.
