Support for children and families living with type 1 diabetes

Diabetes Family Support group has been set up and is run by parents and carers of children with type 1 diabetes, living in Ilkley, Burley in Wharfedale, Addingham, Otley, Baildon, Bingley, Steeton, Silsden and Skipton.

Our objective is to provide support for children and families living with type 1 diabetes.  Rather than holding formal meetings, our group of parents meet up on a regular basis to offer each other support and share experiences in a welcoming way. We also occasionally arrange  family activities such as bowling and visits to a local climbing wall.

New members are always very welcome to join our group.  If you’d like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further information.
