Family Support Network

Family Support Groups meetings are held monthly in communities throughout Nova Scotia to provide support, conversation, and a break for those parents/caregivers of youth living with T1D. An informal meeting, it gives parents an opportunity to discuss the issues they face each day, as well as share experiences that may help newly diagnosed families.

The Family Support Network is run by a group of dedicated JDRF volunteers.  For more information, contact JDRF halifax@jdrf.ca or 1.888.439.5373

Fundraising in Your Community (Third Party Events)

What is a third party event? It is a fundraising event for JDRF, organized independently by an outside (third) party.

If your company, club, or group is interested in helping raise funds for JDRF, there are many ways to do so. From raffles to barbecues, bake sales, garage sales, car washes, and golf tournaments, the only limit is your imagination!

If you are interested in hosting an event or would like more information, contact the JDRF office.
