About us

We are the only charity in New Zealand dedicated to supporting and improving the quality of life for people with CF and their families. Established in 1968 as a volunteer support group for parents with a newly diagnosed child, we dedicated ourselves to shaping a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis.

We receive less than 5% government funding and rely on the generosity of donors, corporate sponsors and grant funders to meet the ongoing needs of our community.
