Jnetics is unique, we are the only cross-communal charity in the UK that exists with the simple aim to diagnose and prevent Jewish genetic disorders from the Jewish community.

We focus on genetic conditions that, though not exclusively Jewish, are of higher prevalence to people of Jewish ancestry.

Our mission is to prevent new cases of these devastating, yet wholly preventable, disorders within the Jewish community by providing education and accessible carrier screening to all young Jewish adults.
Our programme offers access to responsible and subsidised genetic screening options. We provide carrier screening in conjunction with Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health (CRGH), for severe recessive JGDs via our Jnetics Clinic, Jnetics on Campus, and Jnetics at School programmes

Our hope is that no parent should ever have to endure the heartache of having a child born with one of these truly devastating, yet wholly preventable, recessive Jewish genetic disorders.

As the joint official ‘Engagement Partner’ to NHS England, supporting ‘The Jewish Community’s NHS BRCA Testing Programme’, we educate and raise awareness about BRCA-associated cancers and BRCA testing, to key audiences both within and outside the community.

Jnetics are entirely reliant on donations from the community to ensure that we can continue our lifesaving and life-changing work.
