Your donations will help us provide a better start and a better future for babies across Wales who have cerebral palsy

 

In Wales, it is estimated that every 5 days a baby is born who will have cerebral palsy. Your donation will help to fund Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s early intervention service ‘Better Start, Better Future’, giving babies who have or are at high risk of cerebral palsy the best possible start in life.

Raising £16,000 this Christmas via The Big Give Christmas Challenge will help ensure that our specialist early intervention service ‘Better Start, Better Future’ is there for every family that needs it and that our specialist team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech & language therapists can offer their knowledge, support and expertise to families across Wales living with cerebral palsy.
