Type 1 Diabetes is one of the most complex self-managed conditions, requiring over 180 extra health related decisions per day. No one asks for type 1, but left unchecked, type 1 can lead to devastating consequences for individuals and their families.

In 2015 the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre was established to meet this challenge. Since opening, The Family Centre has supported countless Western Australians with type 1 diabetes to live the life they choose.

Today the Family Centre’s world-renowned approach has proven countless times that people with type 1 can live a fulfilling life, full of joy and happiness.

The team at the Family Centre offer information, education, connection, clinical care, and wrap-around social support. The centre has a thriving community in Western Australia, supporting people to face the challenges of type 1 diabetes with confidence.

A team of diabetes educators and dietitians are joined by psychologists, life coaches and people with lived experience to offer holistic support. A robust program of events and activities are on offer, ensuring no one has to face the condition alone.

The Family Centre’s ground-breaking work won the Outstanding Charity Award at the 2018 Australian Charity Awards. Its team has been recognised both nationally and internationally. To learn more, visit the Family Centre online: www.type1familycentre.org.au
