Diabetes Help Tauranga Youth Events

 



Jan 2018
We recently heard the story of a beautiful young man with type one diabetes who asked his mum why he never got invited on play-dates or outings with his mates?  His mum contacted us and asked if we could help link families together so that her son and others did not have to ask 'why?'
 
Of course, we thought this was a GREAT idea and as a result, are very pleased to introduce the Diabetes Help Tauranga Youth Group Page run by Lena Fendley (Parent Committee).  The purpose of this page is to allow local WBOP families to link up with each other for social outings and general support outside of formal DHTY events.
 
This page does not give clinical advice or replace support from your usual healthcare provider.
 
Membership of this page is at the discretion of the editor. Visit: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1790882974537524/?ref=group_header to request membership



Fundraisers Needed

We are looking for businesses to help sponsor our events for youth activities.  If you have or you know of a business that would sponsor one of our events please contact us.  We are hoping to raise $15000 for our 2019 Family Camp. If you can help, then we would love to hear from you. 

 P2P (Parent to Parent)
 
Parent 2 Parent (P2P) - We acknowledge that whilst parents are busy, sometimes there is a need to meet up with others living with diabetes and talk through issues or, just chat about life. As such, parents/caregivers are invited to come along, listen to and chat with invited guest speakers, but more importantly spend time with each other.
