National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week: 30th July – 5th August
July 27, 2012
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.
