  • Mission statement

    The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis (CF) for everyone affected by the condition. Our mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer means a life-long struggle, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.

    Cystic Fibrosis Trust aims to:

    • Supporting Breaths for Life. We will work to ensure people with cystic fibrosis have healthier lungs for longer.

    • Making ambitions possible. We will support people with cystic fibrosis to live life to the full, by lifting barriers and championing personal ambitions.
    • Harnessing the power of knowledge. We will be a global authority on cystic fibrosis in order to deliver maximum impact for people with cystic fibrosis.
