Build a Better Future appeal
Build a Better Future building appeal
Help us build a better future for children and families living with cerebral palsy in Wales by supporting the development of our new children’s centre.
In Autumn 2019 we were awarded a grant of £1.5million from the Welsh Government, which along with a major gift from the Moondance Foundation in 2017, enabled us to purchase a new home in Llanishen, Cardiff. Our aim was to create a purpose-built children’s centre befitting of a national centre of excellence, with the space to enable us to see many more children and families. This has been our dream for many years.
Despite the financial challenges we have faced over the last year due to the pandemic, and the need for us to focus on securing revenue income, it has still been vital to move forward with the development of the new centre.
However, the scale of the refurbishment has been significantly reduced. Many of the key features have been removed, including a lift to ensure the whole building is accessible, hoists, furniture and storage, a specialist disabled toilet, partition walls to increase the number of therapy rooms, to name just a few.
Our goal now is to raise the £450,000 required to transform the facilities as close to the original plans, and dream, as possible.
This is where we need your help!

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.

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.
