Get Involved

You can get involved with Jnetics in a variety of ways:

Volunteering

Become a Screening Advisor – We are always looking for individuals with a scientific or medical background to be trained as a specialised Jnetics volunteer known as a ‘Screening Advisor (SA)’. SAs are a crucial part of our screening event team. Their role involves having a five-minute consultation with participants before they provide their saliva sample. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, get in touch to hear more.

Volunteer at screening (and other) events – If you don’t have a scientific or medical background, but do want to be become a crucial part of the team at screening or general events, there are many other roles you can take on. Be in touch if you are interested and we can tell you a little more.

Offer your expertise – If you have experience or expertise in areas like fundraising, community education, healthcare, publishing, database management, administration, lobbying, PR etc, please get in contact to explore the possibility of offering us some time and support. Any additional hands-on assistance will very much help us to achieve our objectives.

If you’re interested in any of the above opportunities or have any other suggestions about how you can help us, email info@jnetics.org and one of the team will get back to you.

Fundraising

Jnetics is funded entirely by voluntary donations and fundraising activities. There are many different ways in which you can help us with our fundraising efforts.

Organise your own fundraising event – Whether you fancy doing a comedy or quiz night, coffee morning or fashion show, just let us know your plans and we can help provide you with fundraising materials other forms of support to assist your efforts.

Collect sponsorship for a personal challenge – Why not do something physical like a run, bike-ride or triathlon, or consider something adventurous like a skydive or trek abroad? You could even do something more personal- why not get sponsored to achieve a weight-loss goal or abstain from your favourite food for a month.

Run/walk in the Maccabi Community Fun Run – Every year we send a team of runners (or joggers or walkers!) to the Maccabi Community Fun Run. It’s a fun-filled and vibrant event with something for everyone. Participants raise sponsorship money for us and at the same time help to raise awareness of our cause amongst their friends, family and wider community.

Dedicate gifts in honour of Jnetics – Whatever the special occasion, whether it is a birthday, wedding, or anniversary, why not ask friends and family to make a charitable donation to Jnetics rather than sending a gift.

Nominate Jnetics as your charity of the year – If you work for an organisation (nursery, school, synagogue etc) or company which has a Charity of the Year scheme and think that Jnetics would be a suitable charity, please nominate us for consideration

Please do let us know if you are able to help us fundraise in anyway. If you have any questions or would like to discuss a fundraising idea, please send an e-mail to info@jnetics.org
