Meeting and sharing

Getting together with other young people is a great way to share experiences. We've created a social network like Facebook but it's just for young people from 11 to 25 who have a childhood liver disease - sign up and join Hive to meet others who understand how it feels to have a liver condition. We also host a range of events from residentials to one day workshops, fun days and bowling.

AlexYou can also read other young people’s stories to see how they’ve tackled different issues and read their tips and advice.

"CLDF has really helped by introducing me to young people like me who have a liver disease. It’s made me feel better knowing that there are other people experiencing the same things as me and seeing how they handle it.

"I’ve been on the brilliant Closer to the Edge residential trip and also been to Drayton Manor multiple times, both are really good fun and you get to meet great people there."

Alex, age 15

"I’ve been to Talk, Tell, Transform and told a story that changed my life, I’ve also met so many great people and new friends. CLDF also really helped my family when I was having my transplants."

"CLDF has helped me because I know that if I need someone to talk to, the young people’s team is only a phone call or e-mail away."
