The Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) is the only national charity supporting people and families affected by cleft lip and/or palate in the UK. Our vision is a world where having a cleft is no barrier to achieving your desires and ambitions.
CLAPA was set up in 1979 as a partnership between parents and health professionals, and this remains a core value of ours. The charity works to provide non-medical services which complement the medical care provided by the specialist NHS Cleft Teams, and aims to support people with cleft and their families from infancy through to adulthood.
CLAPA’s National Office is based in London with a network of volunteer-run Branches and groups all across the UK.
