About CF Tasmania

Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania Inc (CFT) was established formally in 1995, to support and assist those Tasmanians affected by CF. CFT is a registered not-for-profit charity, governed by a 10 member board.

Our vision is to have Lives Unaffected by Cystic Fibrosis

Support is provided directly to CFT members through a diverse range of programs and initiatives. These include equipment, financial assistance, access to counselling, regular newsletters and educational programs. CFT also represents the interests of the Tasmanian CF community with Cystic Fibrosis Australia and at all levels of Government. In addition, CFT is working hard to generate a greater understanding of Cystic Fibrosis across the community and within Government.

Our Board members are drawn from the CF and business communities across the State and have a broad range of skill sets to assist the organisation in supporting its members. In March 2010 CFT appointed the organisation’s first paid employee, a part time Executive Officer.

CFT receives no Government funding and therefore relies on the ongoing support and generosity of the Tasmanian business and wider community in order to continue to provide valuable services to members.
