DRWF have teamed up with Over The Wall to host the first Diabetes Wellness Family Camp for young people with type 1 diabetes and are looking to recruit volunteers and healthcare professionals to help out over the weekend.

The new two night residential camp for families who have a child (aged 0-17) with type 1 diabetes will be held from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th June, 2019 at Liddington PGL in Wiltshire.

To be able to apply to volunteer in 2019 you have to be 18 or over on the 1st January 2019.  

Over The Wall said: “We welcome and encourage a rich variety of age, gender and experience in our volunteers as we want to make ensure we reflect and can support the diversity of our campers.

“We are looking for volunteers with a range of different experience and backgrounds- if you have worked with children before that’s great, but if you haven’t please don’t let it stop you from applying. We value enthusiasm, a sense of fun and most importantly a genuinely desire to help empower children with serious health challenges – if this is why you want to volunteer with Over The Wall, then we want to hear from you!

“You will also be surrounded by a team of fantastic returning volunteers who are not only very friendly, but they also have huge amounts of Over The Wall experience.”

DRWF and Over The Wall are delighted to be collaborating on delivering an activity camp specifically for families with a child living with type 1 diabetes – and due to popular demand this year’s event is already fully booked.
