The Cleft Collective is the world’s largest cleft lip and palate research programme. The project is an initiative of the UK charity The Healing Foundation, supported entirely by voluntary contributions.

Our research aims to make significant progress towards answering three key questions:

  • What caused my child’s cleft?
  • What are the best treatments for my child?
  • Will my child be OK as he/she grows up?

Public involvement in research

We offer opportunities for people affected by cleft lip/palate to make valuable contributions to the overall design of our research protocols and documentation, as well as working more closely on specific projects within cleft lip/palate.

To find out more, to stay up-to-date with our progress, and to receive information about opportunities to get involved, please contact us.
