At JDRF we are constantly working toward finding the cure for type 1 diabetes. We rely on donations and fund raising events to fund the research into the condition.

How old do i need to be?
we welcome people of all ages to get involved with jdrf. if you are under 25 you can sign up to be part of our youth ambassador programme, or if you’re older we’d love you to get involved in whichever jdrf role you’re interested in.
Do i need to have a connection to type 1?
we have a number of roles that don’t need you to have a connection to type 1, such as being part of our events crew, offering your professional experience and expertise or by taking on fundraising support or administration roles in our offices in six locations across the country.
How much time do i need to give?
how much time you decide to give is entirely up to you, but is often dependent on the role that you are interested in. however, we are very flexible with volunteering opportunities as we understand that everyone who volunteers has other commitments too. as an example, if you’d like to become part of our events crew, we will send you our latest calendar of events – you then decide which events fit around you and tell us when and where you’d like to help.
Will you pay expenses?
we believe you should not be out of pocket for giving your valuable time and support to us. we cover all reasonable expenses, including travel and £5 for lunch if your support at any one time lasts over four hours.
