JDRF update spring 2021
JDRF has published its latest
annual report highlighting
the charities achievements.
The Impact Report 2019-2020
explains how the Type 1 diabetes
charity has supported communities,
campaigned for treatments and
technologies and how it's maximised
research. Chief executive Karen
Addington says the charity could
not have achieved so much without
volunteers and employees' support.
She said: "The story of our impact is
told in this report through the voices
of people in the Type 1 community.
Nothing you read here would be
possible without our loyal supporters
and our dedicated employees - a
huge thank you to every one of you.
Together, we are changing people's
lives for the better, and getting ever
closer to our goal: A world without
Type 1 diabetes."
