What is DiaBuddies?
DiaBuddies supports children living with type 1 diabetes and their parents and carers to feel connected, confident and part of a community.
When your child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus, it’s normal to feel different, afraid and worried. DiaBuddies offers fun events, informative educational sessions and a safe space to connect with other families on the journey with a child living with type 1 diabetes.
You don’t have to deal with your child’s diagnosis on your own. Managing type 1 diabetes in children is much easier when you have a strong support system.
DiaBuddies has been made possible through the generous support of our major donor Future Generation Australia and the Jeff Booth Foundation.
Register for one of our events tailored for children with type 1 diabetes and their families.
