What we do

We are a national centre of excellence for families in Wales with children who have cerebral palsy. Our specialist team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists work together to offer transdisciplinary skills, so each child, benefits from their combined expertise. Our family support service offers a listening ear, advice and support. We share our knowledge and skills through collaborative working, courses, national and international conferences.

Noah's story

After our first therapy session, I left Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s children’s centre with something nobody had previously dared give me for my little boy. I left with hope.

Our 30th Birthday Appeal - 'For Every Little Life'

To mark our 30th Birthday, we are launching our 'For Every Little Life' appeal, which will help us ensure that we can see every new baby that is referred to our services during our birthday year. 

We know that if babies at risk of cerebral palsy have to wait to be seen by us, then the window of opportunity to make the greatest change to their future outcomes, which occurs during the first two years of their life, gets smaller. We don't want this to happen to any family. 

Over the next year, we want to raise £30,000 to help ensure that we can provide every baby that is referred to our early intervention service the specialist therapy and support that they, and their family, need.
