Meet Slater and Gordon
Slater and Gordon is one of the largest consumer law firms in the UK with a National Centre of Excellence based in Cardiff. Since they sponsored our 25th Birthday Ball at Cardiff’s City Call in June 2017, they have become increasingly involved with, and supportive of, our work with children and families.
In March 2020, they became the Principal Sponsor of our vital Initial Consultation service which is the first part of our unique early intervention programme, Better Start, Better Future. This means that Slater and Gordon are supporting the babies who are referred to us, which for the past few years has been at least 40 babies per year, with a two hour Initial Consultation with one of our expert therapists and our Family Support Coordinator.
Rachel Morgan, our Head of Income Generation, says:
We are extremely grateful to Slater and Gordon for all of the support they have provided us in many ways over the past few years, but especially so for the significant sponsorship they are now providing which is helping to fund our Initial Consultation service. As a charity that relies on donations for the majority of its income, we thank Slater and Gordon for helping us to ensure that babies being born in Wales today and in the future will be able to come to us for support in these vital early stages.
Yvonne Agnew, Head of Clinical Negligence at the firm, says:
As a practitioner with many years’ experience gained by assisting families who have children with cerebral palsy I understand just how important guidance, support and most importantly early therapy can be and for that reason I am delighted that Slater and Gordon are able to support Cerebral Palsy Cymru in providing this vital service to families across Wales. We are truly proud to be able to support this exceptional charity and its dedicated service providers who provide such a vital service in such an inspirational way.
If you would like to chat about how we might work together now (virtually!) or in the future, please contact Rachel Morgan, Head of Income Generation, on 02920 522600 or at firstname.lastname@example.org

I started to Bake for Bobath in 2014 as a fun way of saying thank you to Bobath for the amazing therapy they have given my granddaughter.
Held at home, a small gathering of friends with plenty of cake and coffee plus donations, £97.00, not bad I thought. Still held at home it is an annual event on m…

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.
