How we help

CLDF provides a wide range of services to people who have been directly affected by childhood liver disease. Here some of those we have helped explain how CLDF has helped them.



“A lovely lady from CLDF came to see me in hospital. She sat with me while I cried and then told me about the Foundation and how they could help us.” Read more 



“I met Rich from CLDF. He told me about all the stuff the charity does including Breakaway, a residential trip where I could do a high ropes adventure course and a 24 hour survival course.” Read more



“When we Googled biliary atresia, as you naturally do, all the results were from medical journals except for the CLDF page which explained it all in plain England. This helped me to explain to our friends and family what was wrong with Reid.” Read more



“CLDF is so valuable to us because they help you feel like you’re not alone. They understand. They help provide fun when the world doesn’t seem to be that fun.” Read more



“When I called I felt a surge of relief. I spoke to CLDF’s families officer who was so kind and just listened to our journey. It was so helpful to know that if I needed to talk to someone about my worries and how I was feeling, I could, and that there would be no judgement.” Read more


“I had never been to a CLDF event and didn’t know what to expect but it was great fun. The best bit was building models out of chocolate and meeting other children who have liver disease like me.” Read more
