SUPER SPELLERS have chosen to support DiABETES UK.
Here at SUPER SPELLERS, we know how many families are affected each day by diabetes so we are on a special mission to raise awareness.
There are over one million children in school right now who manage lifelong medical conditions which includes Diabetes.
Diabetes UK know there’s a lot to think about if you have a child with diabetes in your school and your care. It is really important, that a child with diabetes feels confident and safe in school and doesn’t miss out on any part of their education because of diabetes. So, they have developed loads of different tools and resources to help you do this.
Diabetes UK work closely with schools across the UK. Please see the links below, which will take you to schools and parent specific pages on the Diabetes UK website, where you will find information, help and support:
