Established in 2010 in memory of cystic fibrosis sufferer Leanne Mitchell, The Leanne Fund is the foremost cystic fibrosis (CF) charity in the north of Scotland providing vital social, practical, emotional and financial assistance.
Living with cystic fibrosis impacts daily on the lives of sufferers and their families. Through a unique range of support services, The Leanne Fund significantly improves lives by helping those affected by the illness to live a full and rewarding life. This is achieved by providing individuals with the support they need whenever it is needed and enabling families to enjoy special times together – creating happy memories.
Cystic fibrosis is one of the UK's most common life-threatening inherited diseases affecting over 10,500 people in the UK – that's 1 in every 2,500 babies born. Over two million people in the UK carry the faulty gene that causes cystic fibrosis – around 1 in 25 of the population. Each week five babies are born with the condition and sadly two young lives are lost – that's two too many! There is currently no cure for the illness.
Since The Leanne Fund was founded it has continued to expand and develop the range of services and experiences offered in response to the needs of cystic fibrosis patients and their families.
Services available include:
• Special treats and experiences
• Crisis grants
• Complementary therapies
• Leanne's Christmas Rainbow
• Hospital transport costs
• TV cards
• Get Active
• Over the Rainbow
• On the Move
Full details of all our services and how to apply are available on our website.
