National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week: 30th July – 5th August

National Cerebral Palsy Week (CP Week) will be held from Monday July 30th to Sunday August 5th.  CP Week is an annual celebration which recognises the achievements of people with cerebral palsy, and aims to create greater awareness, understanding and acceptance.  The important message for our community is to focus on seeing people with cerebral palsy firstly just as people, and to work together to achieve full social inclusion.

“National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week highlights that with the right support people with Cerebral Palsy can and do reach their potential, despite the economic, physical and attitudinal barriers often faced,” said Glenn Rappensberg, President, Cerebral Palsy Australia.

One of Cerebral Palsy Australia’s member organisations, CPSN Victoria, is hosting some events as a part of CP Week – why not get involved by visiting them at:

  • Stall at NAB, Docklands – Thursday August 2nd and Friday August 3rd
  • CPSN Cocktail Party – Sunday August 5th.  This free event at Clifton Hill requiries a ticket – click here to book yours!

Cerebral Palsy Australia suggests a number of ways to get involved in CP Week – by learning more about cerebral palsy, sharing a story or by simply making a donation.
