About us

Seahawks is a support group for families who have type 1 Diabetes in their lives. Our purpose is to provide emotional and practical help to parents with type 1 diabetic children and their
siblings.

We do this by organising events such as barbecues, fun days out, games nights, discos etc. 

We understand that being a type 1 diabetic can make children feel different and have found that getting together with other children who are suffering with the same condition, makes them realise they are not alone and provides them with a positive experience.

Our children’s ages range from the very young to teenagers and we try to organise different events to make sure there’s something in it for everyone - we are always open to suggestions for events
and venues.

Seahawks has been running for over 10 years – the group was initially set up with the help of staff at QA hospital and is now run exclusively by parents of children with type 1 diabetes – people
just like you.

We maintain the full support of the paediatric diabetes staff at the hospital and they attend some of our events and help promote the group to type 1 diabetic families.
