Working together to improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes – charities JDRF and INPUT announce merger

JDRF and INPUT logos

JDRF and INPUT are pleased to announce that the two charities are joining forces.

With the help of our amazing supporters, the two charities have achieved much separately and 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.

Working together, JDRF and INPUT will:

  • Fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes
  • Work to accelerate the pace of research and the delivery of treatments and technologies in the UK
  • Give support and a voice to children and adults living with type 1, and their families

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.  Founded in 1970 by parents of children with the condition, JDRF leads the fight against type 1 diabetes, funding research to cure treat and prevent it and working across the world to accelerate the pace of research, to deliver new treatments on the path to the cure, and to provide support, information and a voice to children and adults living with type 1 diabetes.

INPUT JDRF charity merger - INPUT CEO Lesley Jordan and JDRF CEO Karen Addington

INPUT CEO Lesley Jordan and JDRF CEO Karen Addington

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.

The INPUT and JDRF teams will start to work together from the JDRF London offices from July, with the formal merger planned for October. For the foreseeable future all of INPUT’s communication channels will remain the same and any future changes will be communicated with plenty of notice.

We hope that everyone who has worked with JDRF and INPUT will welcome our news and work with us to improve even more lives, until we find the cure.  If you have any questions, please contact info@jdrf.org.uk

Fusion 2018 blog post by Alasdair (speaker)

Alasdair, who spoke in the #WeAreNotWaiting session, wrote about INPUT Fusion on his blog.

He writes: “I attended the INPUT FUSION day on the 2nd of June in the London Irish Centre in Camden. It has become a yearly event but this is the first that I had attended. Its logo above says it all – it was a really good way of getting 100 delegates and others to come and talk and share amongst themselves and representatives of different diabetes companies showing their wares. I had been asked to come and provide a viewpoint of OpenAPS and #WeAreNotWaiting whilst @understudypancreas aka Annie Astle provided the counter view – more of that later…”

Fusion 2018 guest post by Carole

I’m so pleased that I went to the INPUT Fusion meeting, as I learned much more about available technology, how it works and where it’s going. As a ‘lady of a certain age’ I confess I find technology can be very confusing and it was great to listen to the excellent speakers, all of whom used fairly simple language to make their talks accessible to the likes of me. I was fascinated listening to Professor John Pickup’s talk about the history of diabetes technology – we have so much to thank him, and other researchers like him, for. My brother developed diabetes in 1964, aged 10, and I remember well how rudimentary things were. We’ve come a long way, though there is a way to go. I also enjoyed chatting to other attendees, and in doing so I found out about the things you can use to turn the Freestyle Libre that I use into a CGM, eliminating the need to scan. I bought it immediately!

Amongst the people I met were two ladies who have been diagnosed with LADA (latent autoimmune diabetes) like me. It was so good to talk to them, and I hope to meet up with them again.

The importance of engaging with social media has become clear to me, if you want to be involved in the wider diabetes community and make certain you know what’s going on. It can be difficult for us oldies, but my first experience with INPUT has given me much more confidence to do so.
