You may be surprised to learn that cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood.
In Australia and worldwide, one in 400 children are born with cerebral palsy.
Cerebral Palsy Alliance is committed to providing the right treatment, intervention and equipment knowing what a phenomenal difference it makes to how much children with cerebral palsy develop, how quickly they progress, how well their family cope, and how they can achieve basic skills and, for the lucky ones, independence.
Our goal is that each person achieves their personal best.
Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation also has a vision. A future without cerebral palsy.
In 2007 the Research Foundation conducted a global study. More than a hundred experts from Australia and around the world identified 33 research priorities, which were grouped into seven key research themes including genetics, infections, blood disorders, brain repair, predictors in pregnancy, research tools and intervention.
These priorities now help researchers focus on areas which have the potential for the most impact, on the most people, in the shortest time.
So, if you share in our passion for providing essential services and therapies, and realising our vision of a world without cerebral palsy, your gift - regardless of size - will enable us to continue our vital work.
By leaving a gift in your will, we will be able to provide people and families with the essential treatment, services and equipment to change their lives for the better, and continue vital research into the prevention and cure of cerebral palsy.
