Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (drwf)

The Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) is seeking volunteers to support a free therapeutic recreation camp in Wiltshire for children and young people living with Type1 diabetes: Friday 7th – Sunday 9thJune at Liddington PGL in Wiltshire. PGL is named after its founder Peter Gordon Lawrence, but is often referred to by children as ‘Parents Get Lost’

The project is being funded by DRWF in partnership with Over The Wall (OTW) specifically for families with children with Type1 diabetes aged from birth to 17 years.

Volunteers need to be a minimum of 18 years of age. They do not need clinical experience, and if they have worked with children before that’s great but not essential. The organisers value enthusiasm, a sense of fun and most importantly a genuine desire to help empower children with serious health challenges

Successful applicants will need to attend an orientation following confirmation of a satisfactory DBS or PVG police check, at least two adequate references, and an MMR vaccination.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact DRWF for more details at their headquarters based at Langstone Technology Park by telephone during office hours (9am-5pm Monday to Friday) on 023 9263 7808 or by email: enquiries@drwf.org.uk
