Leave a gift in your will
Why gifts in Wills are so important
Did you know that on average gifts in Wills fund 63 babies each year to have a vital early assessment and specialist therapy if they have, or are suspected of having cerebral palsy? The number of babies and their families needing our service is increasing each year. Please help us to be there for those babies yet to be born.
How we are funded
We need to raise £1.8million each year to provide our service to children and their families. We receive around 20% of this from statutory sources however the majority (80%) comes from donations, gifts in Wills, retail and fundraising activity. In other words we are very much dependent on support from people like you.
The impact we have
The impact of our service is often best described by the families who come to us…
Following a block of specialist therapy, William was able to sit up on his own. Following a further block of therapy, he started crawling. William is now able to walk independently – he falls a lot and is very clumsy but he has exceeded all our expectations. The intensity, duration and expertise of Bobath therapy have produced astounding results. We feel privileged to have had the help and support from Cerebral Palsy Wales and are sure that William’s achievements are due to the skill of the therapists so early on in his life. Rebecca, William’s Mum

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.
