With the Lionesses winning the UEFA Women’s Euro competition this weekend Diabetes UK speak to Lucy Wieland, Group Liaison Officer by day and Women’s Project Leader with The Diabetes Football Community in her spare time.

The Diabetes Football Community (TDFC) was created in 2017 by Chris Bright, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1999, but still went on to gain a masters degree in Sport. He’s since played football to semi-professional level and became a Wales Futsal International in 2016. The purpose of TDFC is to provide people living with type 1 diabetes with a peer support network to help deliver further understanding and enjoyment from football.
