The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dedicated to all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). They fund research to treat and cure CF and aim to ensure appropriate clinical care and support for people with Cystic Fibrosis. The CF Trust Head Office is in Bromley, Kent, but they have fundraisers and Expert Patient Advisers based throughout the UK. In addition to staff, they have Research, Medical and Gene Therapy Advisory Committees who make recommendations to the board of Trustees for final approval of funding projects that are of important and/or immediate clinical benefit to those with Cystic Fibrosis.
Their work is also assisted by Patrons and other celebrity supporters, along with Ambassadors who have CF themselves.
Since the founding of the CF Trust in 1964, they have been working to improve the lives of people with CF, raise the profile of CF and fund research into a cure.
Their objectives are to:
- Fund medical and scientific research to develop a cure and provide effective treatments for Cystic Fibrosis.
- Ensure appropriate clinical care for those with Cystic Fibrosis.
- Provide information, advice, support and, where appropriate, financial assistance to anyone affected by Cystic Fibrosis.
