About the organisation

One in every 700 children is born with a cleft lip / palate.

CleftPALS Vic can help with support for families and friends and information about the cleft condition.

We are a group of volunteers – mostly parents and cleft-affected adults – who understand what parents and families are going through, and want to help.

We have Contact Parents throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria, regular support play dates, feeding equipment orders, regular newsletters, informative seminars and family fun days to help support you. We lobby government on behalf of cleft affected families, hold fundraising events, inform and educate the medical and general communities, and support cleft affected children in the Third World.
