Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) is the only UK-wide voluntary organisation specifically helping those with and affected by, cleft lip and palate. It provides support for new parents and for people with the condition and their families, from infancy through to adulthood.
All branches are run by people who have themselves benefited from the organisation, often working in partnership with local health professionals.
