About Us

Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania (CFT) helps Tasmanians with cystic fibrosis (CF) live longer and healthier lives and supports and advocates for the CF community and their loved ones. We work collaboratively with other CF Associations around Australia to enhance the lives of those living with CF.

Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania became an incorporated association in 1995 and is a not-for-profit organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient status. As CFT receives no Government funding, we rely on the generosity of our supporters, donors and volunteers to deliver high-quality support to Tasmanians living with CF. 

Our team of staff is small, but we are passionate about supporting our members and their families in the most meaningful way possible. CFT is governed by a committee of ten volunteers, including parents of people with CF, supporters with business and leadership skills, and adults living with CF. 

Embracing Tomorrow

CFT is excited to announce the new tagline for CF associations around Australia. Taglines are used within businesses and the charity sector to identify purpose and values in a short, simple statement.

“Embracing Tomorrow” reflects a promise to our communities that we provide care, regardless of what their tomorrow holds, recognising that everyone’s journey is different. It recognises that with improvements in drug therapies and treatments, the services we provide in the future may need to change. 

Importantly, we see it as a reflection of the many powerful stories of fully lived experiences, the resilience of our communities and a statement of hope for the future.

How to find us

CFT is based in Hobart but provides services state-wide to Tasmanians living with CF.  The office is staffed part-time, and while visits by our members and supporters are most welcome, we encourage you to call ahead to check if we are available.
