To coincide with World Cerebral Palsy Day on 6 October 2022, we have published our Annual Review, setting out how we have supported people with cerebral palsy and their families over 2021-2022.
Between April 2021 – March 2022 we provided specialist therapy to 140 people with cerebral palsy and with a total of 701 individual therapy sessions for children and adults. We also ran two therapy-led groups for primary-aged children.
Recognising that cerebral palsy can impact mental health as well as physical health, we also provided 21 one-to-one sessions with a Clinical Psychologist to support people’s overall wellbeing.
Sharing information has been an important part of our work and has continued throughout the year. Our website, regular newsletters and social media have kept people updated on news and services relevant to the CP community and our virtual conference in October 2021 allowed the cerebral palsy community to share information and experience.
Through our campaigning, we have also worked hard to keep the needs of people with cerebral palsy at the forefront of the minds of statutory service providers and policy makers and continued to play a leading role in policy development.
