Who is this event for?

This conference is for adults born with a cleft. Each adult attendee can bring up to two additional guests, such as friends or family members.

This event is not aimed at parents, carers or families of young children born with a cleft.

Clinicians and researchers are welcome to attend, but should keep in mind that this is not a medical conference and the primary focus will be on supporting, informing and empowering adults born with a cleft.


Two ‘pricing tiers’ are available: £25 per person, or £15 per person for those less able to pay.

Each place at this conference costs CLAPA around £60, so all tickets are heavily subsidised to encourage more people to be able to attend.

What’s included

Lunch, tea/coffee, biscuits and pastries are included in the cost of your ticket.

All workshops and talks are available to all attendees (though some workshops will run simultaneously).

These tickets do NOT include accommodation. We regret that we cannot pay travel or accommodation expenses for attendees.

How to book

We have a strictly limited number of tickets available, so please book ASAP to avoid disappointment.

You can bring up to two guests with you (you’ll need to pay for each ticket).

When booking, please let us know if you have any dietary or access requirements, and we’ll be in touch if we have any further questions.

We will have a number of workshops taking place at the same time. When booking, please state which you would prefer to join so we can plan accordingly. You can change your mind on the day.

This event is made possible thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund.

When will a full agenda be available?

We are still agreeing on details of the full agenda; this will be published as soon as we are able to do so.

This was my first event with CLAPA, and I was in a very supportive and caring environment. I was really happy to have received a lot of useful information from the team, which had a wealth of knowledge they were happy to share; I can’t thank them enough.
