The aims and objectives of the Scottish Association for Cleft Lip and Palate Charity (SCO32668) are to ensure that Scotland contributes to research into the cause of cleft lip and cleft palate and to assist with improving the quality of cleft care. With your help SCALP will continue to contribute to both the drive for prevention and to improve the quality of life for those children who are born with this condition.
How Can We Help
“Every 11 minutes a child is born somewhere in the world with a cleft lip and palate. This gene is certainly one of the most important to be identified. ...”
You can help Scotland's cleft charity in its ultimate aim to reduce the number of children born with cleft lip & palate by supporting research into this area in Scotland. You can help through a group, a company, a trust, a school, or just volunteer by participating in an event. However you choose to help, your support will be of great value.
“We hope that families who are affected by cleft lip or palate take some comfort from the fact scientists are making important inroads into understanding this common condition. But if the funding isn't available, breakthroughs like this won't happen”.
You can donate now, securely and simply through a credit or debit card or by PayPal. And if you donate through Gift Aid we'll be able to claim more from the Inland Revenue, so please tick the Gift Aid box if you're a UK tax payer.
