CLAPA is the only national charity dedicated to improving the lives of people born with a cleft and their families in the United Kingdom. We get no government funding and rely on donations from people like you to keep going.

“When my Sonographer told me about my baby’s cleft I was devestated. Soon after, I found CLAPA who introduced me to a whole new community of smiles and support. The experience has been amazing.”- Parent of a child born with a cleft
