The Family Centre's Pirate Party 2017

Our families didn’t let the crazy weather stop them from attending our Pirate Party on 1 July! We had over 120 kids, parents and grandparents attend. With face painting, temporary tattoos, a colouring corner and our very own Pirate Mike to entertain the kids, everyone had a blast!

We love creating fun community events that give our families opportunities to connect and develop the strong peer support networks they need to get through the challenges of type 1. At the Family Centre, type 1 is normalised; it's a place where nobody bats an eyelid when someone needs an injection or a blood test, because everyone else is doing the same thing. Knowing that you're not alone really matters.

Bringing our families together is the best part of our work - we look forward to seeing you at our next community event!
