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
Here in the UK, we’re also proud to be a part of a global network of independent and coordinated organisations working towards a shared vision of a world without type 1 diabetes.
