Welcome to The Diabetes Football Community! We’re here to support and encourage you. This network allows people to share their experiences with others, ask questions, seek guidance and learn more about opportunities which could be created for people with diabetes to access football. Nothing should stop our involvement in the beautiful game.
As an organisation we support our community through the Education and Participation opportunities we encourage and provide which can be seen below:
|Our Website blog shares the stories of the community as well as tips and advice.||WhatsApp Groups offer a chance to speak with others living with Type 1 Diabetes for Men and Women.|
