The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis, and those who care for them.
Since they started in 1964 they have dedicated themselves to promoting excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with cystic fibrosis and their families.
They believe that everyone with cystic fibrosis deserves the best quality of life and real hope for the future, with access to high quality, specialist care.
To achieve their goal they fund research to better understand and treat cystic fibrosis, review standards of cystic fibrosis care, and provide information and advice to the cystic fibrosis community.
