Arc Infrastructure is pleased to announce the continuation of support for the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre through a three year partnership.
Since opening in 2015, the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre has adopted a uniquely comprehensive approach to helping people affected by this often-misunderstood condition.
Through clinical services, peer support, workshops and information sessions, transformational camps for teens and families, and online courses and health communities, they help people with Type 1 diabetes build their capacity to manage this challenging disease through acquiring knowledge, building skills, establishing routines, and connecting with supportive services and communities.
By partnering with this Australian-first facility, Arc are helping to connect, support and inspire regional Western Australians impacted by Type 1 diabetes.
Currently, the Family Centre supports over 1,900 families. Their goal is to expand further, and develop the capability to support everyone in Western Australia living with Type 1 diabetes.
Arc Infrastructure is delighted to play a small role in helping the Family Centre achieve this goal through our direct support of their new Regional Chapter Communities Project
As part of this project, the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre will establish regional hubs in Western Australia. These hubs will offer support to people living with Type 1 diabetes, as well as to their support networks.
Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre CEO, Bec Johnson, said Arc Infrastructure's incredibly generous support will be utilised in communities including some of the most isolated and under-served parts of the State.
"Importantly, it also gives parents of young children living with Type 1 great comfort knowing the Family Centre is available for their children at every age and stage," Bec said.
Arc Infrastructure CEO, Murray Cook, praised the Family Centre for expanding their community by training Type 1 diabetes community leaders.
"We are proud to provide ongoing support to build the Family Centre's presence in communities along the State's freight rail network. They continue to make a real difference in the lives of those impacted by Type 1 diabetes," Murray said.
