Action Cerebral Palsy
Action Cerebral Palsy began in 2013 as a national consortium of specialist charities working with children with cerebral palsies and their families.
Action Cerebral Palsy became a registered charity in 2016 and now works at a national level towards improving public, professional and political awareness of the issues facing children and young people with cerebral palsies.
We aim to represent the best interests of the CP community to policy makers and are committed to developing models of best practice at national and local levels.
Our vision is that every child and young person in the UK with cerebral palsies is able to access from birth onwards the best possible intervention, care, education and support which meets their complex and changing needs.
Action Cerebral Palsy will work towards improving public, professional and political awareness of the issues facing children and young people with cerebral palsies. We are committed to facilitate the development of models of best practice at national and local levels.
Action Cerebral Palsy is proud to have sponsored the first two sessions of the first All Party Parliamentary Group on Cerebral Palsy. These sessions examined the vital importance of early detection, diagnosis and best practice pathways of care for early intervention for infants and young children with condition.
Thank you to all the expert speakers who contributed to the sessions and to all those who have submitted written evidence to the APPG. We hope that the APPG will be instrumental in improving the care available to all infants and children with or at risk of cerebral palsy and their families so that they can have the best possible start in life.
