Help us spread joy this Christmas
This Christmas, give a gift of hope, confidence and health by giving to the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre.
We're celebrating the powerful health transformations and life-changing impact that donor support has helped us to create. With thanks to our community of supporters, we have continued to extend our services to create a dynamic, whole-of-life service which combines information and inspiration, peer and psychosocial support, clinical care, and awareness and advocacy for the type 1 community in Western Australia.
This year we have;
Provided 1116 hours of face-to-face, phone and online community support
Trained 82 babysitters to care for a child with type 1 diabetes
Welcomed more than 600 new members to our online communities
Supported over 1000 parents in the management of their child’s type 1 diabetes
12,000 Western Australians are living with type 1 diabetes, a complex autoimmune condition requiring round-the-clock medical management: multiple insulin injections each day, frequent blood glucose testing, and strict regulation of food intake and physical activity. No two days with type 1 diabetes are the same, the daily challenges and burden of the disease are unrelenting. With 300 new diagnoses of the disease each year, the majority of whom are children, the need for a service dedicated to educating, connecting, and inspiring people with type 1 diabetes, has never been so compelling.
By giving a gift to the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre this Christmas you can help us to relieve the burden of type 1 diabetes for children and families and spread Joy this festive season.
