DRWF Events: Report from our Diabetes Wellness Type 1 Family Camp
Activities over the weekend included climbing, archery, dancing, games and quizzes and much more, all while meeting and getting to know other children and families living with type 1 diabetes.
Parents also had the opportunity to join focus groups and share their thoughts, questions and experiences with the DRWF team and Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse Heather Holland from George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust in Warwickshire.
Lee Calladine, DRWF Events Coordinator, said: “As always ,the camp was enjoyed by all involved and campers went home buzzing with excitement and energy and new friends. DRWF and OTW are already looking forward to welcoming many more new families to Camp in the Cloud in December.
“We were pleased that many of the families joined us at our recent United Through Diabetes event and will also be taking part in our focus group programme where we aim to understand the needs of families living with type 1 diabetes and the support, services and resources they need.”
