National charity Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) have developed a resource that enables pupils to be physically active through purposeful movement without stepping outside of the classroom.

This resource teaches pupils the benefits of philanthropy and the opportunity to raise additional unbudgeted funds for your school and DRWF. 

What is Dance for Diabetes?

Dance for Diabetes is a fun, interactive PE and movement resource incorporating educational learning and philanthropy, enabling financial benefit to your school and DRWF. 

Schools will receive a host of readymade classroom resources supported by a step-by-step and simple to follow dance video, choreographed to a well-known pop song that all the children will know. 

With any partnership we have ensured it has learning and development objectives, an abundance of fun and what’s more, although everything is fully provided by DRWF. We aim to form longstanding relationships with schools, so we are also ensuring fundraising efforts are split between the childs school (40%) and Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (60%), making this hugely beneficial to the schools aims and objectives.

We are excited to announce that Dance for Diabetes will be delivered in schools week commencing 20th May 2024. 

How will this benefit my school?

"We loved being involved in Dance for Diabetes. It's fun for the children, easy to implement because everything is provided and the school are even able to benefit from fundraising efforts. It's the perfect relationship."
