1. Introduction

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, a consortium of sports clubs from various European countries –  TSV Bayer Leverkusen (Germany), HAŠK Mladost (Croatia), Lazio Volley (Italy), Olympiacos (Greece), WSC (Austria) – and a Federation representing people living with diabetes and healthcare professionals, the International Diabetes Federation Europe, have joined forces to develop a publication which will address the main questions and concerns among all key stakeholders – children and youths 25 and under, and their parents (parents must also have children and youths living with diabetes 25 and below) as well as coaches and trainers. The project is co-founded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. 

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 stakeholder groups to determine which are the main concerns and questions which should be included in the publication.

The survey
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey data will be used for research purposes only and will not be used for any commercial purpose. Your answers will remain totally confidential.

For children between the age of 6-12, both the child and one parent should fill in the survey. Ideally, the parents should not be the ones supervising their children to avoid the risk of influencing them.
