Convention is back! We’re so excited for our annual event of learning and support for families affected by rare growth conditions and concerns. 

Registration open!

Online registration is now open to all. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new attendees joining too as we all come together for our special CGF weekend, with extra time planned in this year for those who’d like to network and socialise with others.

Member benefits

Members booked to attend convention will receive a free member goody bag at the event and for 2024 thanks to a grant received from the People’s Postcode Lottery we are offering free childcare to members. If you’re not a member but would like to take advantage of free childcare places for members in 2024, you can add membership to the event booking form (or you can become a member here).

Kate’s Bursary

We are extremely honoured and grateful to the family of Kate, who had been members of the CGF for many years. Kate had a growth condition and attended the annual convention as a child and teenager, appreciating the information and support.

Sadly, Kate died in 2019. In her memory, Kate’s parents would like to provide funds of £500 a year to enable a family to attend our convention, who might otherwise be unable to afford to do so.

The bursary for the 2024 convention will be for a maximum of £500 and can include: cost of convention, hotel accommodation, convention childcare and reasonable travel. Find out more, including how to apply, here.
