About the Organisation
The Foundation is the UK's leading charity relating to children's growth. The Child Growth Foundation is an independent charity and receives no central government or local government funding. It must provide for itself. The Foundation supports children, families of children and adults with growth related problems. It also funds research into possible solutions to these growth related disorders.
The conditions under the CGF umbrella are: Turner Syndrome, Russell Silver, Syndrome/Intrauterine Growth Retardation, Bone Dysplasia, Sotos Syndrome, Premature Sexual Maturity and Growth/Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiency.
Our aim is to: support and encourage all persons (either children or adults) who have growth disorders, and their families, in any manner which is charitable in accordance with the law of the United Kingdom; promote and fund research into the causes and cure of growth disorders in children within the area of benefit; publish the results of such research; educate the public in general and workers in the medical profession in particular, in the problems and difficulties encountered by those with growth disorders; encourage the regular monitoring of growth and development criteria by medical professionals at all levels; and facilitate such monitoring by identifying and making available on loan or for purchase equipment suitable for the purpose.
