Diabetes Youth Wellington

Organisation page created in the Health category

Diabetes Youth Wellington (DYW) relies heavily on donations to support diabetic youth and their families across the Wellington region.

Main image

Our aim is to foster a vibrant and supportive community where young diabetics and their families across the Wellington region interact, share challenges and support each other.

Most of our members have Type 1 diabetes, an auto-immune condition for which there is no prevention and no cure. They must carry out multiple finger prick glucose tests and insulin injections every day. As well as this, those with and caring for people with Type 1 diabetes must constantly monitor food intake, physical activity and blood sugar levels.

Become a supporter! Donate now and help us continue to provide our much needed and valued services. Your donation will help us:

* Provide ongoing support to diabetic children and teens (under 18 years of age) and their families

* Provide opportunities for young people affected by diabetes to network with others to share experiences and challenges - these include our annual camps (for 8-12 year olds and 13-17 year olds), along with educational sessions and social activities

* Provide a forum for parents to meet and share challenges and relevant information

These events provide our members with opportunities to form peer support networks, so they feel they are not alone in their challenges with this chronic disease.
