About Us

EDUCATE
ENCOURAGE
EMPOWER

We believe in social opportunities to support people with Type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Diabetes education is essential, and the vibe with it needs to be encouraging. We provide camps for adults, active workshops for children & adolescents, coffee chats for parents, and the occasional inspiring fundraiser for the community.

LOD chairs a global network of likeminded organizations, to share and develop practical approaches to T1D education. We are a registered charity (under DiAthlete) in England & Wales no. 1190 263.

Our Mission

Dealing with the continued decisions and calculations every meal time, sports day or social event, and 24/7 managing this autoimmune condition, Type 1 diabetes is every bit as psychologically challenging as it is physical. LOD believes in generating more opportunities to recognise and support this area, with peer led events and recreational activities to learn and connect with others.
