This March, we're celebrating Cerebral Palsy awareness month and bringing our community together, virtually, for a month of learning and sharing.
Throughout the month, we'll be discussing Cerebral Palsy and your individual experiences through our conversation hashtag - #letstalkcerebralpalsy, opening the floor to our community to share their own stories and end the stigma and misinformation.
Alongside the conversation, we'll be hosting an array of events to support, educate and empower people with Cerebral Palsy, their families and people who wish to learn more about it. These sessions will include informative webinars for adults and families living with Cerebral Palsy, group support sessions for both adults and babies, and will be rounded off at the end of the month with a fabulous fundraising event starring talented comedian Rosie Jones, singer-songwriter Plested and more special guests! To find out more and book your tickets to any of our events take a look right here!
Madeleine Cassidy, our CEO can't wait for you to join the consersation, saying: “We are so glad we are able to provide these free and informative webinars and sessions for our community and those looking to learn more about the Bobath approach or Cerebral Palsy itself. It is our aim to empower and maximise the potential of our people and whilst we are all social distancing and many shielding, these accessible and informative events are a great way to provide support and information whilst staying safe. We hope as many people as possible living with Cerebral Palsy can benefit from these events and the continuing free services our charity will be providing. ”
We have been generously supported by our friends at JMW in putting together this programme of events for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. JMW’s medical negligence team has supported and worked with us for several years. They have also represented children and adults with cerebral palsy, as well as other conditions, for more than two decades. In that time they have secured countless lifelong care packages that have made an immeasurable difference to our community’s lives. You can learn about this award-winning team and read about some of their recent cerebral palsy cases here.
