The wider social impact of CF on family life means that practical advice and emotional or financial support should be easily available.
Coping with CF at the time of diagnosis and other stressful occasions can be challenging. There are many issues involved such as how to get a toddler to take medication, what to tell your child’s school or how to deal with resistance to physiotherapy.
The CF Trust’s Support Service provides practical and emotional support, information and help with the benefits system. Ring the CF Helpline on 0300 373 1000 for information, advice and support on any aspect of Cystic Fibrosis, including benefits and how to apply for them, and welfare grants offered by the CF Trust.
