Healthcare professionals with an interest in diabetes are being sought to volunteer at a type 1 diabetes camp this summer.
Clinicians are being encouraged to sign up as volunteers to ‘enhance their professional practice’ and ‘gain invaluable experience’ on managing type 1 diabetes.
Organised by Diabetes UK, the residential camps are designed to support children and young people with type 1 diabetes, without their parents or carers.
During the camp, volunteers will help the children and young people to:
- Increase their knowledge and confidence living with type 1 diabetes
- Realise that having type 1 diabetes does not need to stop them doing anything they want to do
- Come away from camp feeling positive about the future
- Get to know other children and young people living with type 1 who know exactly what it is like to live with the condition.
