Resources for schools

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

We’ve developed the schools programme to provide support 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 for free, or you can follow the icons below to read more about the resource.

Your school can help us end type 1 diabetes

Schools up and down the country are raising money to help fund our life changing research. We have a whole host of fun activities and ideas for you to try at school or you can bring your own idea to life.
