CleftPALS Contact Parents can truly be a blessing for the many families feeling confused or anxious or who may be experiencing difficulties along the cleft journey.  As parents of cleft babies and children our CleftPALS contact parents have experienced the many aspects of raising children with cleft lips and palates and are only too happy to talk to you about your cleft child.

Please feel free to contact the contact Parent Coordinator or the President  who will advise you of the contact person most suited to assist you.  Please note that our Contact Parents are all voluntary so we apologise that there may be some delays in responding to your enquiry.
