The Sharing Helps.

Welcome to the website of the Cleft Palate and Lip Society of WA
(CleftPALS WA)


Our Mission

CleftPALS WA is a voluntary support group consisting of parents of children born with a cleft, adults born with a cleft and professionals who care for children born with cleft conditions. Our motto is the sharing helps. We understand the difficulties, heartache and sometimes the shock that comes with having a child with a cleft lip/and or palate and are keen to help you as best we can. This website seeks to compliment the work we do and aims to support those regional families who don’t always have the opportunity to come to a morning tea or visit a contact parent to ask for advice.
