Created by parents Maddie and Rob Julian after their young son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, DigiBete is a video platform that helps educate young patients and families about managing their condition.

The clinically approved social enterprise was created in partnership with the diabetes team at Leeds Children's Hospital and is a member of Elmwood’s inaugural accelerator programme, LaunchPod.

Since launching in February 2018 the free website has gone on to win ‘Best Use of Technology and Social Media’ at the Leeds Hospital’s NHS Trust ‘Time to Shine’ awards.
