    Amelia’s Story

    Amelia is part of CLAPA's Board of Trustees. Our Trustees are a small group of volunteers who take responsibility for governing CLAPA as a charity and directing how it is managed and run. CLAPA's staff look after the charity's day-to-day work, but our Board of Trustees ensures everything we do is governed and directed by the cleft community.
