Description

Cleft New Zealand is the ‘come-to’ place for everyone touched by the condition of cleft. You may be a parent of a newborn, a teenager born with cleft or an adult who has a wealth of experience to share. You may be a professional working with families who really wants to make a difference, or you may just want to learn more.

We have the contacts, the knowledge and, most importantly, the passion to support you, no matter who you are and where you are at. Sure it is serious facing the challenges every step of the way, but let’s do it together with positivity and a light heart.

We work closely with health and educator partners, international cleft organisations, and individuals all around New Zealand. We believe in facing our fears with positivity and hope. Our work supports individuals working together for a shared vision with benefits for all.

Cleft New Zealand is a non government funded, not-for-profit, Incorporated Society 222784. Cleft New Zealand is registered under the Charities Commission CC21700. We are governed by a constitution, applied and audited by an Executive Board. As a membership-driven organisation, we are guided in our work by what our members require.
