Sometimes it can be easier to talk to someone outside your family and close friends. CLDF’s Families and Young People’s Teams have a wealth of experience in talking to young people and families who are affected by childhood liver disease. We are always happy to provide information and support but as we are not medically trained we cannot provide medical advice.

How we can help

We are here to support you from the start of your liver journey until your child turns 25. Please view these videos to hear all about what we can offer your family every step of the way. You can also contact a member of the Support Team for specific advice via the staff details at the bottom of the page.

One to one support

Whether you have a specific query relating to your child’s liver condition, or you’re simply feeling very alone and need to talk to someone, we are here for you.  Contact us on 0121 212 6023 from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. If you are not available to talk within these hours, email us at with your availability and we will do our best to accommodate you.
