About us Our philosophy Although our international and research philosophies are laid out below as two separate entities, they are united by a core ethos - to provide sustainable care and long-term solutions for children born with cleft lip and palate. We believe children with cleft lip and palate should receive the best care wherever possible and we firmly believe that this is only achievable with multi-disciplinary teams working together. We also believe that cleft patients should receive the kindest treatment possible and this can be made possible with effective research into improving outcomes.
