We are the leading UK charity specialising in type 1 diabetes. Our vision is a world without type 1 diabetes. To achieve our mission of eradicating type 1 and its effects for people in the UK we focus on doing three things, and doing them well:
We currently spend £5.80 of each £10 you donate directly on this mission. We then invest £3.30 in fundraising which means that we can raise a further £10 the following year. We spend the remaining 90p running JDRF and making it an efficient and sustainable charity that will be here for everyone with type 1 diabetes until we find the cure.
Every pound we spend on research comes from generous donations from people like you. We receive no government funding. This is why we invest in our sustained growth, aiming to generate more income each year to support our mission to improve lives and cure type 1 diabetes. We will continue do this until we find the cure.
Over the last 10 years, our investment in fundraising has meant we have increased our annual income from £2.5 million to £6 million a year – an average growth of 10 percent a year.
