JDRF - Type 1 diabetes charity

We are JDRF. We won’t stop until we create a world without type 1 diabetes.

There are currently 400,000 people in the UK with type 1 diabetes, over 29,000 of them are children.

We are committed to eradicating type 1 diabetes and its effects for everyone in the UK with type 1, and at risk of developing it. To work towards a day when there is no more type 1 we:

•  fund world-class research approved and administered by our international research programme to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes

•  make sure research moves forward and treatments are delivered as fast as possible

•  give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families

We fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1. We work with government, academia and industry to accelerate research in the UK and within healthcare policy to ensure that the outcomes of research are delivered to people with type 1 in the UK. And we give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families. Join us in creating a world without type 1 diabetes.
