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.
