  • VACANCY: Trustee

    CLAPA is looking for a new Trustee to join its Board and help CLAPA through this exciting period as we implement our strategy: Involve, Support, Improve. We would like to recruit someone who has knowledge and experience of charity fundraising and has ideally worked within the voluntary sector. We are also keen to recruit someone currently living in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Meetings are four times a year and travel expenses are paid.

  • The Community’s Role in Research

    Our Children and Young People's Council do more than just play games and eat pizza - they also spend their meetings making a real difference to others born with a cleft like them! In a new video put together for the Appearance Matters 7 Conference, the CYPC share what CLAPA and its work means to them.
