JDRF, the UK Type 1 diabetes charity

and INPUT Patient Advocacy, the UK

diabetes technology advocacy charity,

have announced plans to combine their

organisations in order to work together

to improve the lives of people with Type

1 diabetes. This merger will unite two

strong voices for people with Type 1

diabetes in the UK in a shared mission

to accelerate the progress of research to

cure, treat and prevent Type 1 diabetes,

and improve access to new treatments

and technologies.

Karen Addington, UK Chief Executive

of JDRF says, "JDRF and INPUT have

worked together closely for over a decade,

sharing expertise and insights to improve

the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes.

JDRF's global research programme has

been driving the development of new

treatments for Type 1 diabetes including

the artificial pancreas, encapsulated islets

and glucose-responsive insulin. As many

of these treatments move closer to reality,

it is essential that we support and facilitate

their swift adoption by the NHS."

Lesley Jordan, INPUT Chief

Executive, adds, "Linking JDRF's worldclass research

with INPUT's expertise in

diabetes technology access will increase

INPUT's capacity to tackle individual, local

and national access issues. Together,

we will help more people gain access

to diabetes technology, now and in the

future. Input will continue to exist but

within JDRF and will be still available to

Charities update

The core UK diabetes charities have all been busy with new

developments and partnerships in recent months.

give advice to people with Type 2 diabetes

regarding access to technology, should

they need it. This merger will take away

some of the back-office admin, leaving us

freer to focus our energy on doing more

advocacy, which is where we feel we

most need to get our messages across."

JDRF in the UK is part of a global

network of charities, which together

make the world's leading charitable

funder of Type 1 diabetes research. For

20 years, INPUT has supported people

living with diabetes, advocating for easier

access to diabetes technology across the

UK, such as insulin pump therapy, flash

and continuous glucose monitoring and

structured education.

INPUT and JDRF will start to work

together from the JDRF London offices

from July, with the formal merger planned

for October 2018.

With Gusto

Meanwhile, JDRF and restaurant chain

Gusto have partnered up to raise

TO MERGE

awareness and funds for Type 1 diabetes

and to help end the guessing game that

is part of eating out in a restaurant if you

have the condition. As part of a menu

refresh, all Gusto restaurants across the

UK now offer fully carb-counted menus

available to anyone who asks. Matt Snell,

Managing Director of Gusto, says, "We're

delighted to be able to kick off this new

menu launch by partnering with JDRF to

help make a difference to people in the

UK who live with type 1 diabetes."

Gusto has pledged a proportion of

proceeds from their Romesco chicken

salad to JDRF. Donations will also be

made when you reserve a table and you

will also get a 20% discount if you book

This comes as additional news after

Smith and Wollensky, another small UK

restaurant chain, was the first restaurant

in the UK to work with JDRF to do a

carb-counted menu and a donation per
