At Cystic Fibrosis Community Care our mission is 'lives unaffacted by cystic fibrosis.'
We promote awareness of cystic fibrosis, provide support, advocacy and information to the cystic fibrosis community, and fund medical research into the fight against cystic fibrosis.
As a member of the national CF federation, we work with the communities of NSW and Victoria. We are a not-for-profit organisation and we rely on the generosity of people in those states for financial and volunteer support.
As a not-for-profit charitable organisation CF Community Care relies heavily upon the generosity of the Victorian and NSW public as well as private donors and philanthropic sources. Only 20% of our income is provided by various levels of government.
