CLEFT is focused on providing permanent, sustainable ways to improve cleft care both in the UK and overseas. They provide support in 2 main areas: research projects in the UK to help identify the likely causes of clefts; and projects in lower-income countries to provide long-term treatment and care for less privileged people born with clefts.

For updates on the events we (the BCU team) are running, keep an eye on our social media: @cleft_bcu on Twitter and Instagram. Harriet will be walking a blindfolded mile in December 2021, and in 2022 Ashley and Livi are planning to climb Snowdon! Over the whole academic year (with a variety of group and collaborative events as well) we would love to try and reach £600 for this wonderful charity and we deeply appreciate any and all donations.
