Cleft Lip and Palate Association

The Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) provides support for people with cleft lip and palate, and their parents, from infancy through to adulthood.

In 2013, the charity supported a parliamentary inquiring into abortion on the grounds of disability lead by Fiona Bruce MP, chair of the All-Party Pro-Life Group. In a 2005 press release, the charity stated that "It would […] be difficult to justify a late termination solely on the grounds of a baby being diagnosed with a cleft lip and palate, since CLAPA does not consider the condition severe enough to constitute a 'serious handicap'."
