About

DASH is a voluntary group primarily for families with children affected by Type 1 Diabetes, but we welcome all families living with Type 1.

DASH stands for ‘Diabetes Advice & Support in Hertfordshire’. Our core area is around Hemel Hempstead/St. Albans/Harpenden/Welwyn/Hatfield but all families are welcome. DASH is run by local people whose aim is to provide our families opportunities to meet and share experiences with each other. We have a small executive committee (always looking for more members!)  who organise evening meetings and social events. We are part of Diabetes UK (Charity No 215199)

If your child has recently been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, then please get in touch with us and join our group. For more information, please contact us
