Cystic fibrosis is New Zealand’s most common, life threatening genetic disorder. Despite advances in care, the average life expectancy of someone with cystic fibrosis is less than half of the average New Zealander. These are people; your people – your staff, your customers and your community stakeholders.

Impact through partnership

We are incredibly grateful for the support of our partners who have joined us on our mission of optimising the quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis and their families, helping them to live a life unlimited. Their generosity is funding research, supporting the highest quality of care and providing emotional and practical support to people with CF and their families when they need it most.

To continue this work, we need help from more businesses and community groups. If you’d like to learn more about partnering with us, and how we can help engage your team members and show your community that you’re supporting people with cystic fibrosis, we’d love to hear from you.

How can we help you?

We have a strong presence in New Zealand as a grass roots foundation, forming in 1968 as a volunteer support group for parents with a newly diagnosed child. We are a well-respected, effective and growing charity, who every day makes a tangible difference to the lives of children and adults living with cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis affects families for life, and as a result we have a passionate, long-term network of supporters.

We regularly connect with our audiences through our website, social channels, newsletters and through our network of branches across New Zealand.
