How we raise our money
As a registered charity we rely heavily on the generosity of people like you to support our work. We need to raise £1.8million every year to continue to provide our current level of service. Around 80% of this total comes from fundraising activity such as regular donations, gifts in wills, fundraising events, trusts and foundations and the income from our charity shops. Our supporters are often very inventive in how they raise money for us, with mountain treks, sponsored bike rides, bake sales and concerts to name a few. We fundraise in a variety of ways, to make sure we are not over reliant on any one source of income.
As our contracts with the Welsh NHS health boards account for around 20% of our budgeted income, it is essential for us to maximise income from all potential sources. Our Fundraising team are focused on a constant stream of different projects and plans throughout the year to ensure that the expert therapy and support that we offer can be made available to as many families as possible.
There are lots of ways you can help us to raise money, from donating items to our shops, volunteering your time to help with events, taking on a challenge or inviting us to talk to a community group, as well as a host of others. Please contact our fundraising team via email@example.com if you have any ideas or would like to discuss how you can help.

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.

Bobath to me means I can give something back to my community. I was a customer at Crwys road and liked the atmosphere that the manager created. The volunteers are happy and the manager is kind-hearted and good with everyone so when I got the opportunity to volunteer my first choice was Bobath.
Each visit to Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre in Cardiff meant a 130-mile round trip to get to the centre but it was well worth it. The sessions were a great tool and taught us how to help Ffion and how to continue with her physiotherapy at home.
