We are working towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis (CF) by funding research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones every step of the way.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-limiting condition that makes it difficult to breathe, this causes vulnerability and infection and restricts your ability to fulfill your ambitions. Medication, physiotherapy and general health all have to be taken into account when planning the simplest activity, and being unwell frequently interferes with work and education. This is why we are fighting to overcome all those hurdles – and more!

We have a Helpline where we can be contacted by telephone or email. (see above) We have a forum that you can join as well as a newsletter. Our website has a lot of information about CF, publications and information to help you.
