Learn more about The Rufus Club and what’s involved.

The Rufus Club is aimed at our younger families and will provide you with information about type 1, as well a support network of families with whom you can talk about your experiences and gain insight and support for your family. We are putting together a small series of events, virtual and physical, throughout the year and your child can meet Rufus and receive their Rufus hero medal.

Start your journey with JDRF by:

  • Getting involved along with other Rufus Club members to get creative
  • Feeling part of a fantastic club that is helping JDRF continue its important work
  • Helping others in your school and community to learn more about type 1 diabetes

If you join The Rufus Club we will ask you to complete a set of tasks. These will help JDRF to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and raise money for our medical research. We will ask you to do tasks such as:

  • Designing thank you cards that we can print and send to the people who fundraise for us
  • Hold a fundraising event at your nursery, school or youth group. This could be a Rufus Tea Party, a Rufus Picnic or a #typeonesie day

What will I get?

Besides being part of the only children’s type 1 diabetes club in the UK, you can meet Rufus and receive your Rufus hero medal.
