Event description
T-1 Today UK presents Friends for Life UK, a conference for individuals and families living with Type 1 diabetes.

About this event

T-1 Today UK presents Friends for Life UK, a conference for individuals and families living with Type 1 diabetes. The weekend is sure to be filled with fun and laughter, some tears and frustrations, education, exciting challenges and cutting edge information.  Join our group of world-renowned clinicians, researchers, consultants and guest speakers who live with T1 diabetes.  Attend educational sessions, participate in group discussions, share your story and help to support and motivate others who are on the same journey as you.  Watch the children of all ages become "Friends for Life" and see their excited faces as their bonds develop.  From toddlers to grandparents, from those new to the T1 world to those more experienced, from laypeople to the medical professionals, we will all join together and make new and lifelong friendships.  This is a conference you will never forget and one you will want to come back to again and again and again.

We have delayed opening the Registration Line this year until the Government released their guidelines on future events. With the success of the vaccination roll-out, and the Scottish Government indicating that, all being well, mass gatherings will recommence during the summer months, we are planning a return to our usual “in-person” Conference. However, if the regulations on social distancing restrictions are re-imposed, we will re-evaluate the situation at that time and may require to change to a Virtual Conference for a second year.

Registration Line Opening times:-

Saturday 27th March at 8am – Saturday 3rd April at 11am – First Timers only, including those who were Virtual First Timers in 2020
