Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA)

CLAPA was set up in 1979 as a partnership between parents and health professionals.

It provides support for new parents, and for people with the condition and their families, from infancy through to adulthood.

Cleft means 'split' or 'separation'. During early pregnancy separate areas of the face develop individually and then join together. If some parts do not join properly the result is a cleft, the type and severity of which can vary. The condition affects approximately 1 in every seven hundred babies born in the UK and is the most common congenital craniofacial anomaly.
