Volunteer Your Time

JDRF provides a unique opportunity for you to help bring us one step closer to treating, curing and preventing type 1 diabetes.

JDRF originated as a volunteer led organisation and the passion and dedication of those who provide time, resources and their experience is the key to our growth and continued progress in the search for a cure for type 1 diabetes. Click here to find out more about how to volunteer with JDRF and join our team of volunteers around the country, supporting the search for a cure.

You could also become a diabetes advocate. As a JDRF advocate, you could have a vital role in building links between people affected by type 1 diabetes and Australia's politicians. By reaching out to today's decision makers you'll give them a better understanding of life with type 1 diabetes, and have an opportunity to get their support in helping to find a cure. Find out more about becoming an advocate.

Get Involved with our Fundraising Events

JDRF holds a range of state and national fundraising events to help raise funds to invest in research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. These events are an opportunity for the type 1 diabetes community and our many JDRF supporters to make a difference in the search for a cure. Find out more about how to become a fundraiser.
