Cystic Fibrosis Victoria delivers a variety of support services to people with CF, as well as their family and communities. It provides physical, financial and emotional support and guidance to people affected by the condition. It also advocates for services and sytems that support the CF community.
Through many activities and appeals it seeks to raise funds, awareness and understanding for services and research that can make a real difference.
The organisation was founded in 1974 by a group of parents of children with CF and become an incorporated Assocation in 1984. It is governed by a voluntary Board comprising representatives from the CF community and those with particular expertise in advancing the mission of CFV.
As more than 70% of CFV income is derived from fundraising, it relies heavily upon the generosity of the Victorian public as well as private philanthropic sources.
CFV is striving towards lives unaffected by cystic fibrosis but it can’t do it alone. It takes a whole community to care for and conquer CF.
