Cystic Fibrosis Trust: Since 1964

On 20 February 1964, a small group of trailblazers got together and set a course that would become Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

We won't stop until CF does. With your support, we can get closer to a life unlimited. 

For 60 years we've worked together, sharing moments of frustration, despair and hope, overcoming challenges, and celebrating breakthroughs. Always learning and moving forward.  

It’s thanks for our incredible supporters, clinicians, researchers, and social workers that over the last 60 years we’ve been able to make vital breakthroughs and discoveries in CF understanding and treatment. 

But the journey’s not over yet. Be part of the future by getting involved with our activities to recognise our 60th year.
