Children, teenagers and young adults diagnosed with diabetes sometimes struggle to continue with their sporting activities in the same way as they did before their diagnosis, while parents, teachers and coaches also sometimes lack the necessary knowledge, training and/or confidence to ensure that children and youths with diabetes can participate in all sporting activities safely and to their optimal performance. To address this issue our partnership plans to develop a publication which will address the main questions and concerns among all key stakeholders – children and youths and their parents as well as coaches and trainers. The idea is to disseminate this publication widely to ensure that people with diabetes enjoy equal opportunities and full inclusion in sport.
The first step in the development of this publication is a survey which will be conducted among all target groups to determine which are the main concerns and questions which should be included in the publication.

The survey is available in the following languages:
Analysis of the survey will be published around the World Diabetes Day, 14th October 2020.
