About Diabetes UK Care Events

For over 65 years Diabetes UK has been providing people living with diabetes unique opportunities to share and learn from each other in a relaxed and safe environment on our Care Events.

The Care Events run throughout the year, all across the UK and are aimed at Children, Young Adults and Families living with diabetes. There is a programme of Summer residential events for Children, Family Weekends and one day events for Young Adults in the Autumn.

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Tesco for 2015 which will mean we are able to deliver an extra 15 events across the year, engage with more members of Diabetes UK and support more people with diabetes to connect with each other.

We run three types of care event:

Residential events for children

Week-long, activity-filled holidays for up to 30 children, supported by volunteers, doctors, nurses and dietitians.

Family weekends

Relaxing events for the whole family to come together and learn new things. Up to 20 families can attend, and there is a separate programme of activities for children and adults.

Young Adult events

Kindly supported by Tesco, these one-day informative events are aimed at people with diabetes aged between 18 and 30.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Events team on eventsteam@diabetes.org.uk  or telephone 0345 123 2399* and ask for the Events team.

We look forward to seeing you on a Care Event soon.
