The 25th March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day this initiative is meant to educate, push for inclusion, and find a cure for cerebral palsy. So what better time to shine a spotlight on the incredible work Bristol’s own Cerebral Palsy Plus do.
Cerebral Palsy Plus is a Bristol area charity working with children and adults with Cerebral Palsy, their families and their carers. Their aim is to support members so that no matter what their circumstances or needs, they can live as independently as they wish, living life to the full!
Their aims are:
- to enhance the quality of life of those with Cerebral Palsy
- to enable them to live as independently as possible
- to provide companionship for isolated disabled people in the community; and
- direct support for families to help alleviate the pressures of caring for a family member with cerebral palsy at home.
Membership to Cerebral Palsy Plus is free as are their services. They run many events and activities designed to meet the emotional and practical needs of their members. They also run an information and advice line to help support you with any questions you may have.
