What We Do
Activities, education & social events for Diabetics and there families delivered by health care professionals and volunteers
We run educational and information sessions for parents and diabetic children and young people. We also organise day activities for diabetic young people and their siblings to participate in throughout the year. We have various social events which families can attend
Activity holiday camps where diabetic young people can share experiences with other children and young people. They will also be doing activities they may not normally have the opportunity to do
Activity holiday camps for families with a diabetic young person. This gives families the chance to meet and socialise with other families, share their experiences of living with someone who has diabetes. They will also have the opportunity to do some educational sessions
The East of England CYP diabetes network was formed to promote a standardised approach to healthcare for children and young people with diabetes so that the care, education or support you receive at one hospital is the same or similar to your peers at another, and also to work to improve outcomes for children and young people with diabetes, with a major focus currently being the reduction of Hba1c.
Our team is made up from over 40 volunteers including parents, young people with diabetes and health care professionals from across the network
