Our Mission

To optimize the health, wellness and participation of people with cerebral palsy and their families throughout the lifespan.

We will accomplish this by creating educational resources, initiating wellness campaigns and funding research focused on addressing the early interferences in brain development which can lead to CP. We will also highlight and support research for associated conditions that may interfere with learning or participation in society. Together with cerebral palsy centers, clinicians, researchers, and the CP community, we will work to advance neurorecovery, wellness and lifelong support for people with CP.

    The World CP Day concept was developed by an international group of 50 cerebral palsy charities called the World Cerebral Palsy Initiative. The project is part of a broader vision to draw attention to, and address, the concerns of people with cerebral palsy and their families, by leveraging the collective and regional experience of members and their organizations. The lead organization for WCPD is Cerebral Palsy Alliance in Australia, with support from Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta - Canada and UCP in the USA.
