Useful Resources

There are lots of very useful resources from across the world

There are lots of very useful resources from around the world for individuals living with cerebral palsy and their families.

Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in children. There are currently 17 million people in the world who have cerebral palsy.

In Wales no one knows how many people with cerebral palsy there are. This is why we are co-leading a project to develop a cerebral palsy register for Wales. Using data from other countries we think there are around 1800 children in Wales who have cerebral palsy and that approximately 70 babies are born every year in Wales who will be diagnosed with the condition.

The following are websites you may find useful:

Clara’s story

When we completed our first baby block of 6 weeks of therapy at Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre it was a life-changer. We are truly grateful to have found such help and guidance amongst the darkness, we can now look forward to the future, thanks to Cerebral Palsy Cymru.

Sienna’s story

The early intervention programme, has been such a comfort to us as we were doing something positive from pretty much day one for Sienna. The support and comfort that Cerebral Palsy Cymru provides means that the therapy doesn’t just stop with the child who receives it, the whole family benefits.
