Tajs-journey3CleftPALS is a group of volunteers, mostly parents of cleft-affected children or cleft affected adults. CleftPALS is a non-profit organisation that receives no government funding.

Branch groups exist in NSW, Queensland and Victoria (supporting families in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania).


The CleftPALS Vic committee are volunteers who give time and resources to manage the affairs of the group. Contact Parents are parents who have a child with a cleft and who support others when their child is diagnosed. We have a range of Contact Parents throughout Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. The Contact Parents have been through the experiences themselves and can offer a parent’s point of view on the journey through cleft treatment and the day to day care of your child.
