DIABETES UK is inviting Hillingdon families affected by diabetes to a weekend away in Kent, from April 4-6.

The offer is open to families with children of all ages.

Roy Rosenblatt, London regional manager, said: “The weekend gives parents and children the opportunity to gain the skills, confidence and knowledge to live with and self-manage diabetes.”

It costs £140 per participant aged 14 and over, or £90 per child under 14. All prices include accommodation, activities, trips out, food and snacks. There are funding options available for families who cannot afford to pay.

A maximum of 25 families can attend each event and places fill up quickly. To download application forms, visit www.diabetes.org.uk/careevents or email careevents@diabetes.org.uk
