The group was set up in October 2015 and has had a really positive and successful start. The group meet on the 1st Thursday of every month 6-8pm this provides an oppertunity for the children, young people and their families and friends to get together.
The aim of the group is to encourage understanding to all those around the children and there families which ultimately helps the children to deal with and manage there Diabetes more easily. When others understand the challenges they face, this then allows them to continue to do everything they want to along with there friends.
Aswell as raising awareness the group also do many fundraising activities to raise funds to enable the group to run, for activities for the young people and towards resources required to promote the OKW group and Diabetes UK.
