CLAPA's Children & Young People's Council is made up of eleven children and young people aged between nine and seventeen years old. They were all born with a cleft lip and/or palate.
The purpose of the council is to act as an advisory body to CLAPA about the services it offers which effect children and young people. The Council meets four times a year in different locations across the UK and discusses many issues. Since the beginning of 2008 the Council has been involved with the design of this website as well as the children’s website – clapakidz.com. The Council has also looked at designing and producing new children’s leaflets and as well as giving ideas about how to make the yearly summer camps even better.
These are our current council members. Click on a councillor to find out more about them.
