Welcome to the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain and Ireland.

We are an interspeciality group set up for the study of cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies.

Our main functions are to organise an annual scientific meeting, sponsor research, comment on medico-political issues relating to cleft lip and palate service provision, provide an archive of conference material and provide a membership directory.
