We believe it is essential that schools have the information and support that they need to understand type 1 diabetes and support young people in school
JDRF has developed the Schools Programme to provide education resources and information about type 1 for teachers, school staff, parents and pupils both online and as part of the schools packs.
The schools packs and e-learning module can be ordered free of charge online, or you can follow the icons below to read more about the resource.
