Carmit Bachar (formerly of the Pussycat Dolls) was born with a cleft lip and palate. Here, she answers some questions submitted by some children and young people who have a cleft themselves, and talks a little about growing up, bullying, fame, and developing self-confidence.
The White Lantern Film Company are producing a short film for NHS Salisbury about bullying and other issues related to different medical conditions. They came to the CLAPA offices to film members of our Children and Young People’s Council about their experiences growing up with a cleft, and how CLAPA has helped to make a difference.
They have produced a trailer with some clips of the interviews, and we’d love for you to watch it and let us know what you think!

Cleft Awareness Week is here, and one way to get involved is to support new and exciting research taking place across the UK and abroad.
The Cleft Collective is one of the world’s largest cleft lip and palate programmes, and they need your help to conduct high quality research which will benefit all families and individuals affected by cleft lip and palate.
