Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation JDRF exists to find the cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications, and is the world’s leading charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research.

It was founded in 1970 by a small group of parents of children with type 1 diabetes who recognised that insulin injections are not the cure for this life threatening and lifelong condition.

JDRF UK became part of the mission in 1986, fuelling the global fund-raising effort and distributing vital cash ~ more than £500m to date – to support the experts toiling to find the cure. This year, around £3m has been given to more than 20 UK research projects studying the causes, prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes and its complications.
