The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis (CF) for everyone affected by the condition.” 

Since we started in 1964 we have dedicated ourselves to funding ground-breaking research, providing support and advice to people with CF and their families, and campaigning on the issues that matter.

Our mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer means a life-long struggle, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.
