We’re so glad you’re here!

CleftPALS is a volunteer-based non-profit organisation of parents and professionals involved in the treatment of the cleft condition.

CleftPALS works most actively to support parents who have young children that have been born with a cleft. CleftPALS can assist with reliable and supportive information if an Ultrasound Detection of a cleft condition has occurred.

CleftPALS is also available to provide ongoing support to older children and adults who have been affected with a cleft condition, and we’ve been providing phone contact and advice throughout the years. CleftPALS has been supplying services to parents whose children are born with a cleft for over 30 years throughout Australia.

CleftPALS NSW has a committee supported by regional members and contact parents.

NOTE: CleftPALS does not provide professional medical advice. Specific questions about treatment need to be asked of professionals working directly with the cleft lip and palate condition relating to each patient.
