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.

Hospital Visits

Next time you are at the hospital for an appointment or on the ward, you may find one of our Families and Young People’s Team there or one of our clinic volunteers. We make regular visits to hospitals all over the UK to meet new people and chat to families who already know about Children’s Liver Disease Foundation.

Find out where we will be in the coming weeks here.
