Our CP Connect service, which offers free therapy and support to children and adults with cerebral palsy during the coronavirus outbreak, has been awarded £5000 from The Crerar Trust.
CP Connect aims to help address the physical and emotional needs of people with CP at this challenging time, and help build strength, mobility and confidence.
The service is designed to help people in whatever way best suits them – it may be a conversation, an online chat, an onward referral, or it may be getting some virtual or in-person therapy. To find out more and sign up, visit our CP Connect webpage.
Commenting on the award, Virginia Anderson, Head of Fundraising and Communications at Cerebral Palsy Scotland, said:
“We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the The Crerar Trust who have provided much-needed funding for CP Connect. This is an important service that is continuing to help people with CP and their families during the coronavirus outbreak.”
Crerar Hotels operate hotels and inns based in Scotland, and more than 50% of the group’s distributable profits are donated to charities operating within areas where Crerar Hotels are based.
A wide variety of organisations recently received awards from the Trust, including those providing support across health, education, and social inclusion to people of all ages. Applications to the Trust will reopen in 2022.
