Diabetes UK Cymru hosting free parent event in Caernarfon

Leading health charity Diabetes UK Cymru is hosting a free networking event in Caernarfon for parents of children with diabetes across North Wales.

The charity is hosting the free parent network day in Plas Menai National Watersports Centre, Caernarfon, from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 3 July.

Aimed at parents of children with diabetes, the event will feature talks about care of children and young people with the condition and is also a great opportunity to meet fellow parents of children with Type 1 diabetes.

Speakers include parent Rachel Bennett, from Welshpool, who has devised her own carb-counting system to manage her daughter’s insulin dosage and Dai Williams, Diabetes UK Cymru’s National Director.

Mr Williams said: “Diabetes UK Cymru is delighted to host this parent network day in Caernarfon as it’s vital for parents of children with the condition to meet up and share their experiences.

“Type 1 diabetes is increasing throughout Wales and the rest of the UK and the day is a vital opportunity for parents of children with diabetes throughout North Wales to find out more about the condition.”

A free lunch is available to attendees. Children are welcome to attend but there will be no children’s activities during the event as it is aimed at parents.
