We need your help
This is a time of great anxiety for many people with cystic fibrosis. Many of the CF community will currently be ‘shielding’ themselves or their loved ones, or you will know someone who is.
At the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, we are doing all we can to try and support people with CF and their families through this unprecedented time:
- We are providing emergency support through our helpline and grants, which are more in demand than ever.
- We are helping the community to support each other in this time of isolation with virtual events and activities.
- We are working with the UK CF Medical Association to provide the most up-to-date guidance on how people with CF and their families can stay safe.
- We are demanding that governments and supermarkets do all they can to provide for basic needs.
We have seen an enormous increase in the demand for our services. We want to help every single person who needs us, but we are facing tough choices. This comes at a time when we are facing a substantial drop in our fundraising income as we have had to cancel and postpone a number of events and fundraising initiatives.
Please consider making a donation today to help us continue our work.

Wear Yellow Day
For this year's Wear Yellow Day, we're throwing a Big Yellow Party online from 6–7pm on Friday 19 June, to celebrate the strength and resilience of our amazing community. There will be music, dancing, fun, surprises and, of course, plenty of yellow. Head over to our Facebook event to RSVP and get the latest details on the party.
We'd also love for you to throw your own Big Yellow Party fundraiser. Whether it's a Zoom party, a silent disco or a karaoke event, get in touch to tell us about your party and how we can support you. You can also download our 'how-to' guide (229KB) for tips on how to make your yellow-themed event a success. All funds raised will go towards our Emergency Appeal.
