  • Your details

  • Keep in touch

  • We'd love to keep you updated about our work to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes, and how we support people with type 1. We'd also like to let you know how you can help by donating, volunteering or campaigning.

    We may stay in touch by post or phone if we have those details from you, but it keeps our costs down if we can use email, meaning that we can invest more money in ground breaking type 1 research.

    Please let us know if you're happy for us to contact you by email:

  • To change how we contact you, or to stop all contact from us, please phone 020 7713 2030 and ask for Supporter Care, or email info@jdrf.org.uk
