New Animation : How to Hold a Hedgehog


We’ve been busy working on a new animation and we’re really excited to be able to share ‘How to Hold a Hedgehog’ with you…

Sometimes living with type 1 diabetes can be a prickly experience.  Join Aneesha, her family and Sid the diabetes hedgehog as they work out how to adapt to life with diabetes and calm down their worries.

It’s been written by Dr Rose Stewart, illustrated by Richard Dwyer, and brought to life in animated form by the team at DigiBete.

It’s a fun and imaginative story to help children and young people understand the emotional impact of type 1 diabetes and how it can be managed. It can also help people to talk about sensitive issues, and to learn new strategies to help manage the stresses that come with living with diabetes whilst feeling supported and safe.

You can watch it below or click on the link HERE to see the film and more on the DigiBete website.

Many thanks from all at Team DB : )
