Help us support people with CF and their families through this unprecedented time.

We need your help 

This is a time of great anxiety for many people with cystic fibrosis. Many of the CF community will currently be ‘shielding’ themselves or their loved ones, or you will know someone who is.

At the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, we are doing all we can to try and support people with CF and their families through this unprecedented time:

  • We are providing emergency support through our helpline and grants, which are more in demand than ever.
  • We are helping the community to support each other in this time of isolation with virtual events and activities.
  • We are working with the UK CF Medical Association to provide the most up-to-date guidance on how people with CF and their families can stay safe.
  • We are demanding that governments and supermarkets do all they can to provide for basic needs.

We have seen an enormous increase in the demand for our services. We want to help every single person who needs us, but we are facing tough choices. This comes at a time when we are facing a substantial drop in our fundraising income as we have had to cancel and postpone a number of events and fundraising initiatives.

Please consider making a donation today to help us continue our work.
