Getting more support
With all our age groups, stages and different physical and emotional needs, Cleft New Zealand aims to have levels of support in place for as many people as possible.
Because we are a national organisation and not all our members are in major cities, we have enabled various support methods so nobody should ever feel alone or isolated.
We want you to use this website as your own special link to the latest information and events happening, as a way of keeping in touch with other people within the organisation (via Facebook), and as a functional support where you can contact someone within the organisation at any time.
We are always here for you and your family.
We are growing, but it is still a work-in-progress, so in the meantime you can contact us on 0800 425 338 and we can answer your questions and/or link you to people who can. If you would like to help us in your region let us know.
For smaller towns and centres we are growing our network of families who run local events & coffee groups. For what is currently happening go to What’s new. If there is nothing in your area, keep looking at this site, things are always changing. Maybe you could help?
